I find that pushing -adult- students who are past the beginner stage to read novels and make them talk about what they have read is the best way to expand their vocabulary.
So far I have always used The boy in the Striped Pyjamas and The Reader. Am not entirely satisfied with these. Before I tried with The Dying Animal by Roth but that’s just too difficult for students.
So am looking for a good novel, not too hard, that Slovak students with an intermediate level of English would enjoy reading without suffering too much. I have discovered that The Reader is also too difficult.
It is the first book I read in Slovak, but I had read it before in German.
All suggestions welcome.
