  • Improve your vocabulary or grammar by doing the exercises accompanying each graded reader
  • Improve your listening by listening to the accompanying recording
  • Improve your fluency and pronunciation by speaking along with the recording, following the text as you go
  • Improve your speaking by giving a spoken review of a reader to your teacher and/or classmates
  • Improve your written work by writing a review of a reader and sending it to
