How Readable English Works
Unlock the code to reading in weeks - not years!
Make English Phonetic
Readable English makes English phonetic by embedding a pronunciation guide into each word without changing the spelling, using glyphs (visual cues), graying out silent letters, and breaking words into syllables.
Instead of learning hundreds of rules and the multitude of exceptions of English, with pre-made lessons, students only need to learn 21 glyphs to begin reading - in a matter of weeks vs. years. As soon as students learn the glyphs they can convert any grade-level content into Readable English!
Convert Class Curriculum Content
Once students learn the Readable English mark up, it can be integrated with any class curriculum using the Conversion Tool.
Our patented and award-winning conversion technology enables any text to be converted into Readable English quickly and easily - giving teachers and students the flexibility to create and use their own grade-level content with the Readable English markup.
Pre-made lesson plans with scripts make it easy to teach students the 21 Readable English glyphs. In just weeks, students can start reading grade-level content with accuracy and confidence!
Benchmarking and Progress Monitoring
Using the Lexile® Framework by MetaMetrics®, we provide students with Lexile® measures for reading and listening comprehension and oral reading fluency to offer a more complete picture of their literacy skills. With Lexile measures, we efficiently track progress toward the goal to get to grade level reading and beyond.

Gets to the Root Cause of Why Kids Can't Read
~ Tom Hughes, Principal, Maple Crest Middle School
"Readable English is different. It is something that gets to the root cause of why these kids can't read rather than structured practice in different ways and different tiers. Readable English pulls pieces in that are technology enhanced; it pulls in the value of a real teacher talking to kids and building into kids. And then, it has independent practice. It is a multi-faceted approach and the way it teaches kids is different."
