“English Club” is the name with which we dub the new and original reading workshop offered by the Public Library Network at Vitoria-Gasteiz for the 2014/2015 academic year.
We are presented with a new chance for initiating young learners into the pleasure of reading altogether with the challenge of turning their relationship with their foreign language -English- into an emotional bond.

Read every day is a global literacy campaign, a superb initiative by Scholastic to promote the pleasure of reading amongst young people.
The campaign includes a dozen interviews with children’s book illustratorsplus read-aloud videos by themselves.
Suggested activities introduce the artists through their work, elicit questions, discussions and art prompts, and give children an opportunity to listen to real authors talking about the creative process.
Read every day, Lead a better life was launched in 2013, and we can still have access to its contentsand take advantage of them as EFLteachers or merely as loving parents.
Remember there is a good reason to dive into this project and make it yours: our children.
