Reading is an important  skill to master for language acquisition. Through reading, learners will be able to gather content knowledge on various issues and also improve in the language aspects through vocabulary enhancement. Reading also has a positive effect on students' vocabulary knowledge, on their spelling and on their writing. By reading various passages, they learn how we construct sentences, paragraphs and the whole texts. Stusents then have models for their own writing. Suitable reading texts can introduce interesting topics, stimulate discussion, excite imaginative responses and provide the spring board for well-rounded, fascinating lessons. Reading materials on various themes are included in thi section so that learners get  exposure to various topics and their vocabulary. Graded reading materials are provided based on the levels of the learners.
