Immersive Reading:
Combining the Ear and The Eye

Kids naturally have an amazing capacity to absorb vocabulary. By combining ear and eye, they get an immersive reading experience in which comprehension and vocabulary acquisition is optimized.

The WholeReader library contains tens of thousands of pages of wonderful storytelling meticulously aligned, word for word, with real human narration.

Adaptive Leveling:
Optimized Reading for Vocabulary Retention

You can think of English as a massive ladder with 20,000 word-family rungs. The only way to fully absorb the core vocabulary is through years of effort, with daily reading of challenging material.

For optimal learning, we want students to always be reading books with 3-4% new words. Periodic vocabulary assessment allows the app to focus the student on books which provide this ideal level.

...the average child at the 90th percentile reads almost two million words per year outside of school, more than 200 times more words than the child at the 10th percentile, who reads just 8,000 words outside of school during a year. (Cunningham and Stanovitch, “What Reading Does for the Mind”)

I trained my Iraqi student, a mother with reasonable English to help her 8 year old boy who had difficulty in English class in school, to use WholeReader stories as an extracurricular activity to improve his reading. After two months of reading every day for one hour with his mother. He was able to catch up with his classmates. The school teacher was very surprised by this improvement.”
