WHY ARE GRADED READERS A FANTASTIC LANGUAGE LEARNING TOOL?

–   They make literature accessible and enjoyable. You feel frustrated when reading authentic texts – sometimes they are just too difficult. With Graded Readers, you can choose the right level for you!
–   Graded readers are amazing for vocabulary acquisition. They show vocabulary in clear contexts which allows you to read extensively.
–   They improve proficiency, general knowledge, enjoyment and reading skills. This boosts confidence!
–   Reading becomes faster and more fluent. When we read in our own language, we read in chunks. Graded readers simplify and recycle language, which makes it easier for you to understand the text.
