World Book Day Book Reading Competition

Reading is fun – and it is also one of the useful ways of learning a new language.

We have been running a Book Reading Competition since 2010 in partnership with different educational institutions to provide students with the opportunity to read literature from around the world in simplified English. The competition involves the following activities:

  • reading books
