I give reading assignments to my students at their ability levels and interest. I love the wide variety of fiction and non-fiction texts as they vary in style and genre of reading material.

Elizabeth O., Kingswood, Australia

The children absolutely love it. The are really keen to move up the levels, and earn certificates. They also enjoy watching others working, to see what is happening on the screen. As a teacher it is very straight forward setting tasks and then monitoring how the children are getting on.

Helen S., Colchester, United Kingdom

I love the individual pace students are able to work at. Those who struggle receive more practice. Those who are ‘high fliers’ can move faster. The program is fun for kids, rewarding, and helps them learn phonics and reading.
