    beyond

    Hi there,
    Is it correct to use 'beyond textbooks'?

    I would encourage my children to reading newspapers every day, which could lead them to learn extra knowledge beyond textbooks.

    Thanks

    It is understandable, but it would be clearer to say "...acquire knowledge beyond what they will find in textbooks".

    Hi there,
    Thanks a lot.
    How about these?

    I would encourage my children to read newspapers every day, which could lead them to acquire knowledge outside of their textbooks.

    I would encourage my children to read newspapers every day, which could lead them to acquire the knowledge that they cannot learn from their textbooks.

    thanks

    I don't like your first option. The second one is fine.
