LIBRARY: Listen & Read Digital Reader: Contents


This Reader provides access to the titles available from the ESL Bits English Language Learning and the Florida Centre for Instructional Technology (FCIT) Lit2Go websites. This digital reader links to eBooks, which have an accompanying audio track, for the purpose of improving reading skills and learning the English language. Many of the titles are in the 'public domain.'

The ATOS readability level, as well as themes in the story, have been used to determine the appropriate reading age/category for each story.  The ATOS readability formula evaluates the number of words per sentence, the number of characters in each word, and the difficulty of the words.

Students should consider their own reading ability and also browse the adjacent tabs to find suitable books. The titles are arranged in alphabetical order on each page.
