Description

Learning how to read fluently in a new language requires a lot of practice. One great way to practice reading is this collection of folk tales for beginning Dutch readers. Each story is written for three levels, corresponding to the different developmental stages of reading skills. As such, the book is also very suitable for use in heterogeneous classes.

The stories are written using simple language, but the subjects are rich and full of conversational material for language learners. The stories deal with deception and betrayal, wealth and poverty, justice and injustice, love and jealousy, with a variety of characters who are deceitful, funny, clever or wise. The stories have been taken from the oral traditions of various countries, including Turkey, China, Kazachstan, Suriname, Indonesia, Morocco, Australia, Eritrea and the Netherlands.

An audio version is available for each story in the collection. A code inside the front cover of the book can be used to access the accompanying website, which features all the audio versions and suggestions for how to use the book in lessons.

The authors of Water bij de melk are highly experienced teachers, who also developed the Melkweg+ method.
