GENRE: psychological fiction, humour

CEFR LEVEL: B2 and above

If there is one thing I love, it is showing my students that they can read a novel in English, enjoy it and learn so much in the process. I recently finished a course on this novel with one of my phone students, Laura. Let’s see what she had to say about it:

“I personally liked the novel because it’s an ode to friendship. Without friends, life is not as much fun and as we say in Spanish: “If you have a friend, you have a treasure”. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is a story about overcoming obstacles. The author writes about serious issues like alcoholism and depression with a touch of humour that leaves no place for boredom.

The story keeps you hooked. It’s a heartwarming, emotional and dramatic novel that I would recommend undoubtedly for English learners who have a B2 level. Moreover, as an English learner, it helps you to enhance your vocabulary and to learn the basic formulas for the English language in a clear and natural way. It provides you with a lot of new idioms, phrasal verbs as well which, placed in context, make you understand and remember them easily.

Be brave and try it!  :0)

So what are you waiting for? I am sure you will love Eleanor just as much as I did.

Happy reading! 😊📚
