Hello. My name is Marcy.

I’m 38 years old.

I live at number 5, Hope Street.

I’m married to a lovely man called Vic.

Maybe Next Year contains eight vignette-style chapters about Marcy and her family, and their hopes for 'next year',  told in simple present tense only (Beginner level). While the books are aimed at adult learners, there are younger characters included. 

Like all the ESL Extras reading books, the book contains:
  • the illustrated story (which can be photocopied or shared online)
  • a page of notes for each story, for teachers or tutors 
  • exercises and answers for each story
  • a 'board' game.
There's also an extra activity page for each story.

For some speaking practice, you can also download large versions of the characters' faces (plus ideas on how to use them) at 

Like the other books, this is set in Australia, but learners everywhere will be able to relate to the situations.
(There's an 'Extra Information' page at the front with tips on any Australian situations/usage, plus what to do if you don't use A4 size paper.)

The Preview package offers sample pages you can trial with your learners, and explains the terms of use. if you decide to purchase, the eBook will be stamped with your email address in extremely tiny font at the top of the page. Please contact me on if you have any queries!

Learners can read more about the Hope Street neighbours in Six Stories from Hope Street and The Garage Sale.
