Our approach makes your English teaching experience more enjoyable

We appreciate the effort that goes into each and every English lesson. You want your English language learners to progress and make you proud. We want to help you achieve that with these additional resources available with every title:

  • Ideas from teacher trainers and educational consultants. Our titles have been used for years, by English language specialists all over the world. We asked some of them how they use Pearson English Readers to bring English language learning to life.
  • Interviews with our series writers and editors. Our Pearson English Readers writing team are an interesting and learned group. We share their thoughts on what makes the Readers series so special.
  • Additional teacher’s notes on our assessments and grading system. We know how important it is to match our grading and levelling system with yours. Read more about our grading philosophy & approach.
