Carol by Charles Dickens
This is an abridged and
slightly simplified version of the opening of A Christmas
Carol. It is aimed at English language learners, GCSE
students and unconfident readers. I have tried to maintain
the spirit (!) of the original and most of the dialogue
remains in it's original form.
I hope you enjoy it. If you don't like the idea of any change to the original, I can only say 'Bah! Humbug!'. You can find the original in any bookshop or as an etext here.
An excellent animated version of the story with the voices of Alistair Simm and Michael Redgrave is here (24 minutes)
