    English Reading and Vocabulary I is a university-level English as a second language textbook designed to help students study English vocabulary, learn how to read, and develop valuable reading and comprehension skills. The text helps students cultivate a solid foundation in the English language so they have the confidence and ability to interact with other English speakers in professional, educational, and social environments.

    Students begin with the ABC’s of reading and progress through reading passages of increasing length and complexity. The text presents vocabulary and grammar in the form of a real-life story of a student traveling to the United States to study. The 500 most commonly used English words from the New General Service List are used a minimum of five times throughout the book, reinforcing vocabulary through repeated exposure in context. The text also allows for translation, letting learners convert English examples into their native tongue to promote a higher level of comprehension.

    Designed for beginner-level adult learners, English Reading and Vocabulary I is a valuable core textbook for intensive higher education English as a second language courses.
