Oscar WILDE, ‘The Model Millionaire’ in Outstanding Short Stories. Penguin Readers level 5, B2 2300 Headwords.
                                                         By Lucía Marín Fabián, 1º Bachillerato EFL

There was a very good-looking young man, named Hughie. He was popular and kind. He was not very clever and had no money. He lived on money given to him by an old aunt. He loved a girl named Laura Merton, the daughter of a retired Colonel who would only allow them to get married if Hughie had ten thousand pounds of his own. One day, Hughie received a cheque from a millonaire who looked like a beggar. He was very happy and he got married to Laura.

I recommend this story to students of English of all ages because it is very nice and you can improve your vocabulary.
