ESL Phonics Reading Software
that Accelerates Reading Level

ESL (English as a Second Language) students need to learn to read English at the same time they are learning to speak it. As test scores show, speaking English in no way guarantees the ability to read. Ultimate Phonics is an effective teaching tool that improves reading, spelling, and pronunciation for ESL students of all ages.

The bottom line is that this program works wonderfully! We like the double emphasis of hearing and seeing the words at the same time. And the fact that they are all pronounced in the same manner. There is a good focus on how words in English are put together.Kim Berry, ESL Literacy Teacher

Phonics is the key to reading success

Numerous scientific studies have shown that phonics skills are the single most important predictor of successful reading achievement.

Phonics skills and reading achievement

Find out if we can help

You can use our free 10 minute reading test to easily check your children's reading ability. Of course, very young children can't be expected to read all of our test right now. However it can still give you a good idea of their current reading level and show you how much progress they can make.

You can't leave reading to the schools

If you want your young children to become good readers, you unfortunately can't just leave it to the schools. Look at the reading achievement scores for 4th graders from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). This is the nation's report card on reading in 2007.

4th grade reading scores
  • 34% of fourth graders are very poor readers or illiterate.
  • Another 34% of fourth graders read below a proficient level.
  • Only 24% are proficient readers by fourth grade.
  • Only 7% of children are advanced readers by fourth grade
