may street

A vibrant series of six post beginner readers for EAL, Elicos and Literacy students. The May Street apartments are home to teenagers and refugees, international students and retirees.

The varied characters live in a block of flats in May Street and their lives intersect in six engaging stories.

  • Real life situations of residents, neighbours and families.
  • Each story has language comprehension exercises and an audio version easily accessible on this website.
  • Read and listen to May Street Stories!    Recordings of the stories will be available from early March 2020
  • Available from Bookery
