Characteristics of the Reading Program

In the Reading Programme, native speakers acquire advanced reading comprehension skills and are immersed in reading from a wide range of texts. Progressing in small steps through each stage, the student starts with learning the sounds within the words. After moving on to the fundamentals of sentence structure, grammar and punctuation, students progress to summarization and critical reading involving more complex passages.
