Reading in English is often slow and frustrating.

❌ You have to look up lots of words in the dictionary, which takes a long time.

❌ When you finally get to the end of the text, you’re still not sure if you’ve actually understood it!

What to read? It's hard to find texts that will challenge you and help you improve... but not be so difficult and discouraging that you stop trying.

Many English learners have negative feelings about reading: 📖👎🏻

Instead of enjoying it, they feel like it's too hard, too slow, and too boring.

That's why I created the Reading Course:

to help you practice reading in English, improve your comprehension, and learn and practice new vocabulary.
