Real Reading creates an authentic reading experience through carefully controlled texts, meaning-focused exercises, and extensive vocabulary development. As students focus on the meaning of the readings, they also develop critical academic skills.
- Thematically linked high-interest readings are carefully controlled for vocabulary to ensure that 95% of words are likely to be recognized by typical learners at each level.
- Extensive vocabulary development, based on the General Service Word List, the Academic Word List, and the Billuroğlu-Neufeld List, ensures that students learn the most important words.
• Additional vocabulary-learning strategies — based on the research of Paul Nation — provide students with the tools they need for long-term vocabulary acquisition.
