Welcome to my 5 minute stories for language learners – Grown up stories for Adults with subject matter you might not find from English Language Teaching Publishers.  

A few of my teacher friends have asked me if I could adapt my short stories for language learners. Here they are.  

Table of Contents (Click on the title to go to the story.)

The Magic of Kindle 
The First Date
The Dinner Date 
Let's Dance
The Devil's Bridge

These stories are written for intermediate, adult, English learners, (CEFR B1). 95% of the words used are in the Oxford 3000 word list
They include mention of things like as love, sex, alcohol, death, religion and violence which you might not find in course book material.
The language has been graded but the subjects haven’t.

Please leave this page if you are under 18 or easily offended. If you are over 18 and happy to continue, click the links below and enjoy reading. 

At present there are 13 stories,  and I hope to add two a month. If I get enough page views, I will add more. 

Please enjoy the stories, write comments, tell your friends, etc. Please let me know if you enjoyed them and want more. 

At present these are designed for self study although I do plan to add some teacher's notes as time goes by. If you are a teacher and you would like to contribute lesson plans or feedback on the stories, please do so in the comments section.
