Get ready for another set of exciting fantasy tales that will both entertain and educate the English learner. The Learn English with Short Stories series does not need to be listened to in order, as all of the stories are independent from one another. Listen to one, or listen to them all. Each unique fantasy story comes with highlighted vocabulary and definitions before and during the story.
This guide also offers vocabulary exercises after each tale, allowing you to practice your newly learned terms and idioms.
"The Janitor's Painting": Josh is a washed up graveyard-shift janitor battling depression. Once a promising painter, repeated rejections of his work still sting his pride and thwart any motivation to try again. He is challenged to continue his work when an unlikely inspiration manifests itself, communicating a messaging that is hard for even Josh to ignore.
"Queen of Kalal": A once peaceful village is taken over by a ruthless and cunning criminal. Taking his opponent's wife, Anya, as a trophy - she is forced to face the harsh reality of her fate. It is only when she dares to break the rules that she sees a glimmer of hope left for her people and her late husband's quest for peace.
