Come boost your English skills with our helpful English study materials.
Use the readers to not only understand English as it is written, but to learn how to read quickly. By using the readers to acquire proper English reading methods, you can improve your listening, speaking and vocabulary in addition to your reading skills. We recommend the National Geographic readers to students in Elementary English to Pre-Intermediate English classes who find TOEFL reading difficult. This series has eight levels and, like the TOEFL reading questions, the content is all non-fiction. You can test your reading comprehension with the reading questions that accompany each volume.
