Why readers for teens and adults
Macmillan Readers
Macmillan Cultural Readers


In an increasingly global world and in the midst a technological revolution that offers more and more instant gratification, the benefits of reading in English for teens and adults are more important than ever.

Reading improves concentration and memory, increases fluency (both written and spoken), broadens knowledge and vocabulary, encourages critical thinking skills and promotes empathy.

From the age-old classics to graded contemporary literature, the Macmillan readers selection has something to inspire every kind reader!
