This is a lower-level reading comprehension course designed for younger ESL students who are interested in learning religious vocabulary and culture while practising their reading skills.
Five of the most common stories from the Old Testament will be covered:
- Adam and Eve
- Noah’s Ark
In each class, the students will read the story, discuss the new vocabulary and complete a reading comprehension quiz.
There are two versions of the story. The first (100 words) is in very simple language; the second (100 words) uses ordinal numbers.

This story about the first people includes dialogue with quotation marks and speech tags.
