"Developing fluency should be an important part of any well-balanced language course of study. A good example is speed reading; that is, training in reading faster using very easy material-texts which contain no unfamiliar language features and deal with topics which are mostly familiar to the reader. The goal is to read as quickly as a possible with a good level of understanding. With carefully leveled readings on familiar, high-interest topics, this series is the perfect tool to help readers read at a faster pace and more fluently."--Publisher's description.
