Reading Horizons provides a research-based approach that breaks the basics of the English language into a step-by-step process that shows ESL students exactly what they need to do in order to learn to read, write, and communicate.

Reading Horizons teaches phonics in an explicit, systematic, and multi-sensory fashion. As students build these foundational skills, Reading Horizons layers in activities that promote pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, and comprehension development. Because the program provides a thorough explanation of the rules and structure of the English language, ESL students are empowered with strategies that dramatically decrease their reading, spelling, and pronunciation errors. 

To keep students of all ages engaged and motivated, Reading Horizons takes its unique methodology and makes it appealing to different age groups. This allows every ESL student to get the targeted, quality instruction they need in a way that builds their confidence.

By continuously assessing students and adjusting instruction to meet their needs, ESL students receive instruction that is perfectly efficient. Because the program is highly streamlined and focused, most ESL students show measurable gains within the first few weeks of instruction.
