ESOL – Literacy – Numeracy

StoryWeaver

StoryWeaver is a digital library of multilingual stories primarily for children. However, the stories can also appeal to adults, particularly those who are learning English (and other languages).

As many teachers of English to second language speakers know, there is a shortage of non-Western-centric texts out there, with course books typically focusing on Western culture.

StoryWeaver offers an extensive and refreshing range of stories, not only in English but in over 120 languages. The stories are graded into different levels, but they do not seem to correspond to that of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). Choosing stories that are appropriate for the reader is therefore a bit of a process of trial and error.
