Reading has been part of English language pedagogy and practice from its very beginning. Reading passages are a staple of coursebooks and language learning materials, so much so that learners traditionally learned to read English long before they actually started speaking it. Reading, however, is much more than a didactic tool. Books can engage our emotions and our imagination. An ER project, even a small one, greatly increases learners’ exposure to the English language, as they are engaged in reading for pleasure outside the classroom.

Abstract

Reading has been part of English language pedagogy and practice from its very beginning. Reading passages are a staple of coursebooks and language learning materials, so much so that learners traditionally learned to read English long before they actually started speaking it. Reading, however, is much more than a didactic tool. Books can engage our emotions and our imagination. An ER project, even a small one, greatly increases learners’ exposure to the English language, as they are engaged in reading for pleasure outside the classroom.
