Information for Parents and Helpers

Readable English is a three phase program that teaches reading while developing the five key reading skills (phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension). Using an intuitive phonetic system, the program gives students the skills and support they need to read the materials they are expected to read until that support is no longer needed – it’s like training wheels for reading.

What issues does Readable English address?

It can be expensive to get paid help

At $97 for an annual subscription, Readable English is more affordable than a lot of other programs.

I want to try something at home, but I don’t know how to teach

The one-on-one teaching guide has been designed specifically for parents. Each lesson in the teaching guide has a detailed script you can follow to help you through the process.

I just don’t have time to work with my child

Because Readable English simplifies the process of learning to read by making words phonetic, you should find that after a short initial learning phase your child will be able to practice reading more independently.  

I’ve tried working with my child before, but they are not motivated and it can be frustrating for both of us

Feedback from users, as well as case studies in schools, have shown that students using Readable English have more perseverance in word attack and are more engaged with the learning process. This may help in reducing the tension when working together.

I don’t have relevant reading materials

The Reading Practice Module on the website provides you with leveled reading passages and comprehension questions. You can also take any of your child’s school work and convert it into Readable English using the conversion tools. Finally, you can also buy books in the online bookstore.

I don’t know how to know if my child is at the right reading level or not

Use your child’s school work and reading materials as a guide and ask your child’s teacher what level they’re supposed to be at. The reading materials on the website also give reading ages as a guide.

I might need support

You can find Readable English training videos on youtube, and the teaching guide provides a lot of support with detailed scripted lessons plans. However, we are also available to answer your queries by phone or online chat.

My own English is not very good

The pronunciation guide embedded into each word means that all the information required to decode and pronounce a word is readily available. Students can focus their attention on learning what the word means and how to use it. And because Readable English simplifies the process of learning to read, students are able to practise more independently.
