Extensive Reading Foundation Award

logo_redman.jpg At the IATEFL Conference in Harrogate UK on April 10, Alan Maley announced the finalist books for the 2006 Extensive Reading Foundation (ERF) Language Learner Literature Award. From new graded readers nominated by publishers, the ERF's international award jury chose six finalist books--three books for Adolescents & Adults, and three for Young Learners. Teachers can use the award to raise enthusiasm for reading in English among their students--by inviting as many of them as possible to read, vote for and comment on the finalist books over the next few months. In past years, some people have had difficulty buying the newly-published finalist books in time to vote, so this year the voting page has a link to an independent bookshop where people can buy the books online. Voting closes on July 14, 2006. The jury will take into account votes and voter comments from around the world in order to pick a winner in each category, to be announced on the ERF site.
