LoudLit.org 6 Excellent Free Sites to Practise Reading Comprehension It’s been too long since I’ve written about improving reading skills. Last time I posted about sites to help you practise reading comprehension was in May last year. Way too long. The truth is that doing reading comprehension activities in class takes time, especially if we are talking about long texts with an amount of difficulty, and very often this is one of the tasks we give students as homework. On the other hand, I am one of those teachers who think reading aloud in class is a good exercise. In my opinion, These are some of the sites I’ve been recommending my students to further practise reading comprehension.They are all completely free. 1. I teach different levels, and what I like most about Newsela is that you can give the same news article to all your classes no matter the level. The site also offers a multiple choice exercise to test your comprehension of the article. Although you have to sign up, the site is free. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Hope you find these sites useful!
