In my previous post I promised I would come back with a few ways of how you could use the free online books from OUP, originally available to help English children develop reading skills, in your EFL classes. I found that these stories are perfect for children learning the language for the reasons I had already listed and would be a shame not to make use of them, especially in a world where more and more schools have online access. Yes, in order to be able to use these in your lessons you will need online access, a computer and a projector. If you don't, I will discuss how it could be used by children on their own at their leisure in the second part of this post.
A great plus for using these stories, is that as long as you remember the generic staging, which you'll read about below, this lesson does not require any preparation allowing you to tune in with the children and the story they choose.
