Hello, this is Jack from tofluency.com and in this video we're going to talk about books, and more specifically, what books are going to help you reach a high level of English, so keep watching!
As an English learner, there are so many books that you can buy and read to help you with your English. Now firstly, there are the type of books that are specifically made for English learners. This is, for example, grammar books, course books, text books and books have been adapted for your specific level.
And then, obviously, they're also books that haven't been made, specifically, for English learners; books on a whole range of topics:
fiction and also non-fiction.
Now, I receive a lot of questions from English learners, and one of the main questions I receive: is: What books should I buy to help me
on my journey to English fluency?
Now, I can not recommend a specific book in this general sense because a book that's going to be good for you and that's going to help you on your journey might not be suitable for someone else.
This is because we all have different interests and also we have different levels of English. The key is finding a book that you can understand; a book that isn't too difficult for you and your level right
now and also finding a book that is going to really interest you; a book that you just can't put down.
Now, as you progress with your English and if you are an immediate learner now, I recommend that you find more native materials.Find books at have not been written specifically for English learners;
find books that are native - books that have just been written in different genres.
And remember: Choose a book that is going to interest; find books
on topics that you find interesting. This might be novels, non-fiction like history, sports or politics or maybe magazines and blogs.
Additionally, if you can find the audio for the book, as well, then I really recommend that you do this. If you find books that come along with the audio it means you can listen and read at the same time, you can read a book and then listen later. Or maybe you just listen to the
But having the audio is really gonna help you improve your English.
One last tip: the mentality of choosing books is really important, and what I recommend, like I've said throughout this video, is that you find books that you want to read. Don't read books that you feel you have
to read instead, read the books that you think, "Yes, I really want to read this book and I know I'm going to enjoy it."
And if you don't enjoy the book don't feel like you have to read it - put
it down and choose a different book instead.
Here is a question for you: I want you to leave your answer

I haven't read any books in english yet (except short stories from textbooks for school), but I really want to read Heartless by Marissa Meyer 🙂 But the level might be to high for me since I only know english from school... I read an excerpt of the book on Amazon and there were so many words I didn't understand 🙁 But there are so much more books that don't seem like they're going to be translated to german and that is why I want to read them in english... and now I'm frustrated because I heard you shouldn't use a dictionary...
My son still have problem reading even though he already finished kindergarten. His instructor said he would never be able to keep up or catch up in 1st grade & wished to hold him back. Luckily, we discovered this reading guideline “fetching loli only” (Google it). When he started out First grade, he`s reading and the teacher is absolute impressed and raves about his progress.
Very nice video, thank you. I think, it is very important to pick a book which vocabulary matches the level of the reader, otherwise it would be too difficult to read and the reader might be disappointed.
Actually I'm studying English language and I'm not very much interested with novels i want to read something else and i have to improve my English cuz i luv it but still feels not so well,so my questions are:
1- Which kind of books should i read?
2- Should i translate each single word to my mother tongue language (Arabic) or it's better to understand the meaning through the text?
3- How can i know which level i reached in learning?
THANKS a lot...all the best 2U🍀
I read "A Love for Life" the audio is available too. It really helped me out to improve my listening and understanding skills. I truthfully recomend it to everyone that seriously want to achieve languaje's proficiency.
I've read so many books in English. Read all the ones by Sidney Sheldon! They're easy reading indeed. I read the Color Purple and also some classics such as Jane Eyre, pride and prejudice, Wuthering Heights. The last one I read was The perks of being a wallflower! love it. read it all in 2 days.
I subscribed to the audio and print edition of "The Economist" and I listen and read it weekly, because it is wonderful to take part in "a severe contest between intelligence, which presses forward, and an unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress."
I haven't read a lot of book in English, but my favourite is Harlan Coben "Home". i cannot agree with this what U say in this film more. The best way is choosing book you like, but to know it you firstly should try.
Thanks for this film :)
Hi! My name's Kate. 2 members in my team have a grammar teaching class next week with "be going to + V" but we can't find a suitable book to teach. Could you please recommend me some books that have this grammar structure? Thanks a lot
Constant eye contact in psychology means either agression or sexual interest. Something to work on, isn't it? And talking about choosing books - I'm not interested in anything. Everything seems unimportant, irrelevant and sometimes stupid. I can't start any American book because comparing to Russian classic they all seem shallow, washy and far-fetched. I can't read English books because they are full of words the meaning of which even Brits can't remember
Harry potter and the cursed child my first english book and I really enjoyed it, and it was also very easy to read cause it's Drama, and now I am reading arnold schwarzenegger'S autobiography TOTAL RECALL and its awesome and also easy.
i love reading books ....... i feel like books give me the ability to dream and believe in my self and never lose hope.
my favourite book or novel is the old man and the sea , i read it like a million time
and right now i'm reading curtain by aghatha christie
My answer to your question is A Curious Accident of the Dog in the Night-time, a book that touched my soul. Though the language was quite easy to understand, it contained something beyond like Hemingway's stories with his famous iceberg technique.
