HOME – LEARN ENGLISH STORYBOOK

Hello there, welcome to Learn English Storybook. This is an English education site, but we hope to be much more than that. We want to help English learners develop the confidence in their English ability to pass it along to others.

In the beginning we focused mainly on educating parents and giving them the tools to help their children learn English.  We have created many storybook, nursery rhyme, conversation, and basic grammar lessons that parents or teachers can use to help their children.

Along the way, we discovered that to encourage parents to help their children, we need to also help them improve their English. There are many English sites that you can find to explain grammar and vocabulary. At Learn English Storybook we decided to focus more on conversational English and expressions that you could use in English conversations.

By mixing both lessons for children and adults, we hope to build a community of English learners that are committed to making English part of their daily life. English is a life long journey that takes time, commitment and patience. If you stick with it, and try your best, I’m sure that you will meet your English goals.

Why English Storybooks?

English storybooks are a great way to help your children learn English. There are many reasons for this. For one, children love stories and storybooks. They get the opportunity to visualize the language through the story and the pictures. They get excited to learn English and they start to think of English as something fun and not just another subject they need to study. It’s great for parents as well. Spending time with your children is one of the best things you can do as a parents. But another benefit is that by reading out loud to your child is a great way for you to improve your fluency, pronunciation and overall English ability.

Here is an example of one of our favorite English storybook lessons:

“Mortimer” is an English storybook written by my favorite storybook writer Robert Munsch. You can watch the video with your child and then head over to the full storybook lesson here: Mortimer

Useful Expression for every day:

Learning English shouldn’t just be about memorizing grammar rules or vocabulary. For most people, having the ability to speak or understand what people are saying is more important than taking exams. English expressions are a great way for you to improve your daily conversation skills. “Need a hand” is an example of the expressions your should be learning. You will hear a lot of these expressions in TV, movies and music. That’s because this is how most native English speakers talk.

Try one of our English nursery rhyme lessons:

If you have really young children, it’s a great time to start teaching them English. One of the best ways for young children is through songs and nursery rhymes. They are short and easy for them to repeat. You can also ask them questions about them. Many of them also have hand movements to go along with them. “Pat-a-cake” is an example that combines these elements.

English Conversations:

English conversation lessons are a practical way to help improve yours or your child’s English ability. They are common situations that you may find yourself in. Practice them and try to implement them in your daily life. Some of the lessons you can do at home. By having a conversation with your child in English is a great way for them to learn that English has meaning. “How’s the weather?” is an English conversation you can practice with your child today!
