Reading Coach uses artificial intelligence (AI) to help students improve reading fluency and comprehension through personalized practice. It incentivizes learners to earn achievements and unlock new story elements through enhanced reading skills. Multilingual support is included in over 100 languages. View Reading Coach by scrolling down the page to find Get started, enter as individual learners, student/educator, or IT administrator. For a quick preview, choose the individual learners option. Begin by selecting from the options to create a story using AI, read a passage from the library, or add a passage of your own. Options in the resource library allow you to select passages from eight levels, including beginning readers through readers comfortable with complex text. After allowing microphone access, readers read aloud for up to ten minutes, then stop to get feedback and suggested practice steps. Results provide feedback on pronunciation accuracy, reading time, and words to practice.

Reading Coach includes support from Immersive Reader, reviewed here, making it perfect for use with multilingual learners. Demonstrate how to use Immersive Reader to view text in different languages, hear passages read, and display text broken into syllables. Be sure to watch for additional updates to Reading Coach, which include integration with learning management systems and feedback on prosody (reading with expression).
