Free English Reading Practice

Practice here and improve your overall reading ability in English! is a website run by an EFL instructor with over 15 years of experience in the field of language education.  Several years ago, he noticed that there were few sites on the web that freely provided a comprehensive graduated approach to English reading suited to different levels of English ability.  As a result, he decided to create his own website with freely available reading materials for all English language learners and teachers!

There is a huge amount of original content over a wide variety of topics on the site.  These materials have been developed with different criteria to suit EFL/ESL learners in their efforts to improve their overall English reading ability.  These criteria involve the use of reading ease tools, standardized vocabulary level markers, and feedback from learners.  The website is updated regularly with new content.  I hope that students and teachers alike will feel free to visit and use our materials for educational purposes.
