This is Set 1 of a series of passages for ESL EFL reading practice. There are 10 different passages in this set. Sets 2, 3 and 4 each have 10 passages as well, all different topics and content. Each passage is followed by 5 questions about the passage. They are fun and interesting for students learning English as a foreign or second language, and they are written using very simple grammar and vocabulary so that EFL students can understand them. Add these to your English teaching program by giving them as homework, using them in class, and even talking with your students about the subject matter. If you're looking for fun stuff for your students to read, but everything you find is too hard or uninteresting, you might be interested in these. Check out the free preview to see what they're like. All the passages in all the sets are the same style and format as in the free preview. Happy Teaching!
