Teenage Books for Teenagers: Reflections on Literature in Language Education.
Ronnqvist, Lilian; Sell, Roger D.
ELT Journal, v48 n2 p125-32 Apr 1994
Teenage foreign language learners can better benefit from reading target-language literature if the works include real teenage books instead of abridged canonical classics. Teenage pupils like and want to understand these works because they provide access to the colloquial language used by native-speaking teenagers and because they have themes and plots of interest to teenagers.
