What can I use to encourage my learner to read English?

The literacy council has a great collection of short 'novels' that are written for adults and that come in a variety of difficulty levels, including the very lowest.  You'll find them on the book shelves in the lobby.  Learners will always be more engaged if they're able to choose the books themselves.

Also, find out what's important to your learner.  Does he or she want to read to their child, develop their speaking ability, develop their comprehension skills, or build their knowledge in a particular subject area?  You can work to address these needs while reading the novel of their choice.
