Lord Simon Canterville has haunted the castle for hundreds of years and soon sets about trying to pull his best scare tactics on the new residents, an American minister, his wife, and their children. To his dismay, however, these modern Americans have no use for the traditions of a proper, British haunting. It's a funny, not too creepy story which can also be read together with children.

• Therefore you can check almost instantly whether you understand or not. This is ideal to increase your vocabulary significantly very fast.

• So you can truly enjoy the story since you need only a split second to check the translation.

• With language learning strategy

Extensive reading and learning German with parallel texts: Why?

Extensive reading means reading a lot in a foreign language. It is not essential to understand every word. You continue to read to find out what happens next. The pleasure of reading is what increases language abilities. Kato Lomb was a Hungarian interpreter who spoke several languages fluently. She described in her book "How I Learn Languages" how she used extensive reading to increase her vocabulary fast.

The American linguist Stephen Krashen has said that free voluntary reading is "the most powerful tool we have in language education".
