About Kieran McGovern
I teach and write ELT readers. These include original stories like Race Against Time, (Heinemann) and Love by Design (Macmillan) and simplified versions of classics like Henry James' Washington Square. You can see a partial list of my books here. I also edit http://www.eslreading.org/ and http://younglearners.eslreading.org/ providing online materials for English language learners. These include original stories like Race Against Time, (Heinemann) and Love by Design (Macmillan) and simplified versions of classics like Henry James' Washington Square. You can see a partial list of my books here.

I was very pleased that three of my readers (including my version of The Secret Garden) were singled out for 'their particular excellence' in Bamford & Day's Extensive Reading in the Second Language Classroom (Cambridge, 1998). The authors very kindly described me as being 'amongst the best writers of language learner materials in English.’

You can read a short extract from one of the selected readers here - there's also an audio recording and learning activities here.

I have also written for Ming Pao Daily and IATEFL Voices. In August 2009 I was the BBC World Service Teacher Blogger - it was great fun and I'm pleased that they've asked me to blog again in the future. My websites feature in Tips for Teaching with Call: Practical Approaches to Computer -Assisted Language Learning (2008,Pearson/Longman).
