what books did you read?
which ones did you like?, which ones did you hate?, which one would you recommend?.
Well, I started with a series of books by the Penguin Books Publisher, such as the War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells, The Borrowers by Mary Norton or the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, some of these novels are adapted for beginners, And I also bought The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak and Coraline by Neil Gaiman, but it was a bit difficult besides Dracula by Bram Stoker. For beginners is better some series called "level books"
Sometimes, (I'm old but I liked) I read comics because are a best first contact with the "real " english, slang, idioms..etc.
Great, indeed...I would like to say I do my best, but I'm a bit off this month, because of some health issues...And well, I would rate my fluency in those languages as follows: English, 75%; Portuguese, 60%; and German, 10%....German it's quite a challenge...but I won't despair...
Thanks for asking.
