Recommended Books to Improve Your English
Students often ask me for book recommendations, so I’ve made a page that includes my favourites. I’ll keep adding to it as I find more in the future.
IELTS Exam Books
If you’re looking for a good book to study the IELTS exam, the official Cambridge textbook is a good first choice. It includes examples answers and analyses what makes a good answer. It’s also rated highly on Amazon.
You need to know a lot of tough vocabulary to get a high score in IELTS, so this book is a good one for helping with that. Lots of engaging exercises to help you improve. Best for intermediate-and-above students.
General English Books
I included this book specifically because it’s interesting for me, but really any graded readers will be good! I recommend going on Amazon and searching for “English Graded Reader” and finding a topic that looks interesting for you. Make sure the level isn’t too hard!
This is one of the most popular grammar textbooks our there, and for good reason. It includes a lot and is fairly easy to understand. Really useful to guide you on some grammar when you get stuck.
This was the first English textbook I bought when I started teaching. I love it because it explains grammar in a really simple and colourful way. Makes it very easy to understand. Not your regular textbook!
