Festival of Reading 2018

To celebrate the launch of Olly Richards’ new Short Stories for Beginners series in six languages, we are delighted to present our first Festival of Reading!

 

Reading has long been acknowledged as a highly effective way to improve your skills in a foreign language. So, what better way to encourage language learners around the world to read in their target language than with a month-long festival of reading!

YouTubers and polyglots from across the internet come together to give short readings from Olly’s new books of short stories, in six different languages!

There is a new reading almost every day, and you can find the complete schedule below.

To see what’s happening on social media, use the hashtag: #AStoryADay
