“It’s building that confidence for them, where at 16, they kind of felt like a failure, ‘I can’t do it; I can’t go to high school. Now, they have the success that they can do it; they know they can do it now.”— Jennifer McMillan, Master Reading Teacher, Burke Middle High School, Charleston, SC
“Everybody is working in a much smaller student-to-teacher ratio, and people are getting a lot more individual instruction.”
— Antavia Hamilton-Ochs, Teacher, Bartlett High School, Anchorage, AK
“If you can move these kids, so when they go to high school they don’t feel so far gone, you have literally changed the trajectory of their lives.”— Rhonda Zajac, Director of English Language Arts, Syracuse City School District
“These students are engaged learners now and even the weakest students from the outset are now largely reaching grade level. We’ve used a variety of products over the years, but LANGUAGE! Live is one that has allowed
us to achieve the most significant gains with our then-lowest-achieving students. We’ve had a lot of growth, and even their desire to be learners has changed and grown. In fact, these students even understand other subjects better
because they can read the course materials effectively.”
“We’ve seen an increase in our students’ skills based on the benchmark data that we’ve reviewed as a team at the district. We’ve also seen the joy in our teachers by having use of direct, explicit instruction right in their hands.”
“We are seeing years’ worth of Lexile gaps being closed in a semester’s worth of time.”

Students learning to read often need support to master oral language and the speech sounds of English. The videos from our Sound Library provide instruction for visual aid, extra practice, and accurate pronunciation of phonemes. The short video clips
are a valuable resource for students to see, hear, and experience how the different speech sounds are formed. Excellent for use in face-to-face, remote, and hybrid learning formats.
