Reading books in a foreign language is one of the best ways to expand vocabulary and broaden the knowledge of a foreign language. Although it is a bit more challenging than watching movies, it is much more effective. It connects several teaching methods together. Students are expanding their vocabulary and getting to know phrases and idioms that they won’t learn in a language course. And the most important benefit is that student can learn to think in a foreign language.
Most language teachers do agree that reading in foreign language boosts student’s progress by many months of study ahead. Today in our country there are available many special editions of foreign language publications. In addition to foreign language fiction in the original version there are also simplified books for students of foreign languages??, mirror texts, foreign language magazines etc. In the Czech Republic, however, foreign-language literature is unfortunately not very affordable.
