ABC Literacy Life

This website has links to Literacy programs across Canada as well as excellent articles about Literacy. The website is written in clear words and is easy to navigate. If you would like a better understanding of what literacy is, this is a good place to find some information.

Logo“Having adequate literacy skills means being able to understand, evaluate, use and engage with written texts. It also means being able to participate in society, achieve your goals, and develop your knowledge and potential. Research shows that adults who have [lower] literacy skills are more likely to have poorer overall health, lower salaries, and lower levels of participation in their community.”    – ABC Life Literacy

Audio Assisted Reading

Refers to stories being read out loud while the listener follows along reading the story from written text. It’s a wonderful way to hear a good story while improving your reading abilities. While these readings can be used in person, they are also a great tool for online learning. These websites do not work well on smartphones or tablets. A laptop computer or desk top computer are the best way to use these helpful tools.

Research has shown that audio-assisted reading is a great tool to enhance and supplement other comprehension and reading strategies. Listening to stories being read out loud is fun and relaxing. To learn more and use examples of recorded readings use the links below.

      ESL Bits

ESL Bits is a website that includes recordings and written text of books, novellas and articles. The audio recordings and text cannot be downloaded. The audio recordings have speed control so you can choose the speed the story is read to you. This is great help for people who are learning spoken and written English.



Lit2Go LogoLit2Go is a free online collection of stories and poems in Mp3 (audiobook) format. An abstract, citation, playing time, and word count are given for each of the passages. Each reading passage can also be downloaded as a PDF and printed for use as a read-along or as supplemental reading material. The recordings of the stories are by chapter or section so you cannot listen to the whole story without interruption.
