Review: Unite For Literacy Website/App

Unite For Literacy gives an assortment of reading material for ESL learners to use as another resource for reading practice. This is a free computer site and an iPad/iPhone application, so this will more easily accessible for all types of classrooms.

They have a wide variety of genres that they base their reading material off of. From their list, they offer books on animals, plants and food, earth and sky, technology, health, family, friends, community, create and play and know and learn. They then give the option for the stories to be read out loud from a narrator, offering 30 different languages.

The reading level is set to beginner and can be useful for school age ESL students, as many of the pictures relate to their age range; however, it also can be helpful for adult learners to begin their first steps into reading, as well .
