Ask your grownups to complete a simple registration form for free on this brilliant site to help you develop your reading. After a simple registration process, you will take a placement test and then are given short texts suited to your reading ability from a variety of genres. You then take quizzes on these texts: scores below 70% mean that your next text will be a bit easier; scores from 70%-89% mean your level stays the same; and scores of 90% or higher will lead to a harder text.
