More about the English for All Library

English for All's English library has been especially created to help families in supporting their children to learn and/or improve their comprehension of English.

There are books of all genres and levels to suit children aged 1 - 13 years, fun and simple games that the whole family can enjoy, plus a wide range of children's DVDs to suit all ages and tastes.

  • Perfect for English speaking families; picture books to read to your child, phonics and first reader books to support your child's English reading and comprehension, plus plenty of interesting and engaging books for older readers.​

  • Support your child's English learning by complementing their English at school with English books, games and DVDs.

  • There are plenty of books, games and DVDs ideal for non-English speaking families. Introduce your child to the English language early through reading them picture books, playing English themed games and watching movies and children's English tv programs. 

The English for All library is designed to make accessing English resources simple and readily available.

 

Learning English is fun, whether your child is a native speaker or a student learning English at one of the local schools.

If your child cannot or does not enjoy reading, read to them! Play games, watch films...expose them to the English language. The library is here to enhance your child's learning in a fun way.

I have had numerous enquiries from parents asking about my English tuition, saying that their child enjoys watching English television shows and has a natural attraction to the English language. This resource is ideal for these families!

As mentioned previously, this library had been developed to be of service to the local community, so I have kept the membership fees to a minimum. I hope you find it simple to use and a positive addition to the development of your child's English. I will continue to add new books, games and DVDs as the weeks progress, so be sure to check for new titles.

Happy reading, watching and playing!!!
