This is Reading comprehension 1. It is designed for the absolute beginner. The spaces are for foreign students who are just learning English to write the translations and the pronunciation of the words and / or sentences. After going through all 8 levels of Reading Comprehension 1, you should see a large improvement in the student’s vocabulary, their reading ability, and their comprehension. After the students have completed the exercise, the teachers / instructors should go over each question with the class so they understand and may retain more. This should be used in class and not as homework. If it is used as homework, the students may not really practice pronouncing the words and / or sentences and only answer the questions.
