ListenAndReadAlong Reading English really can be a "world of utmost joy without suffering". That is a comment of one of our Buddhist readers. Our Reading Movies(Rovies) try to make reading an utmost joy without suffering, or at least tolerable without suffering. We're kinda like the "Johnny Appleseed" of reading. If you don't know "Johnny Appleseed", we posted a Rovie on him.We are a nonprofit totally dedicated to making Rovies- Reading movies. Lesson Plans There is a lot of evidence to prove that sustained silent reading is exceedingly beneficial both inside and outside the classroom and a key advantage of mobile devices is the ease with which students can have access to rich reading resources. Additionally, it is also possible to follow the written word on the page, whilst listening to an oral rendition of the text. This is particularly important to students whose mother tongue is written in a script that is not the Roman Alphabet and as in the case of Arabic, does follow the same spelling rules. Vowels are often not represented in written Arabic,: and thus students forget to incorporate them into their written English. Our institution subscribes to the Oxford Bookworms Series of Graded Readers for EFL students.
