Literature is important in life because it develops a person’s critical thinking skills, fosters empathy for others, reduces stress, and widens readers’ personal experiences. One main benefit of literature in education is that it engages the reader in an active learning style, as opposed to a passive learning method, such as gathering information by watching television.

This second part on reading starts off with differentiating the general fields of fiction versus non-ABC fiction. Then, it goes into identifying the different literary forms. The lesson differentiates legends from myths. Then, we go to the exploration of proverbs or those advice-giving phrases or sayings.

Figurative language plays an important role in the next lessons on reading. Figures of speech as a literary device can make language more interesting. It strengthens creative expression and description. It can also cause a moment of excitement when reading. Lastly, we will learn idiomatic expressions or idioms for short. English learners are both fascinated and frustrated by idioms. For one thing, they’re not easy to translate. All we have to do is just familiarize ourselves with them as they come along and hopefully learn to incorporate them in our conversations.
