One of the best activities any student can do to boost their vocabulary, comprehension and literacy is to read books regularly. Even spending 20 minutes or so every evening can have a huge impact over a longer period of time. If you are stuck for ideas to help your son or daughter with their English, then reading is an excellent place to start.
We are lucky at BBA to have an excellent library, with many excellent titles. Listed below are a range of different reading lists that should give students plenty of inspiration!
