So great for reading articles

I am a student and I absolutely love this app. The articles are very good, and I love how there are quizzes and articles in Spanish. I need to write four science articles a week, and I can just go the to science section and start reading. My teacher can assign me articles to read, so when we have a project I know what to read. There are different reading levels, so if you are not advanced you can go lower, but if you are an advanced reader you can read at a higher level! This is such a great source for info, and if you are a teacher definitely use this app for your students. They will definitely enjoy it!

Articles are excellent! Students are thinking thoughts about other things beside rap, drugs, and sex. They are using their minds for a better society; therefore, caring for themselves and their families. Students have a right and a desire to be heard, because they are the future.
I see the students who I taught how to read Shakespeare, Thoreau, Wordsworth, Hardy, John Donne, Shelley, T.S. Eliot...
And hear their speeches...their platforms, and it makes me so proud that these early readings have fostered in them the desire and courage that they, too, can be effective leaders of good of our society.
Students need a forum to begin venues where their thoughts can be formed...and led the greater good for others.

An amazing source of reading for students

I’m quite convinced with having this app on my mobile! The most distinctive feature that distinguishes this app from the other apps related to the same field is that readers can adjust the articles with their language levels and understand the contents better, also, improve their reading skill with a higher level! Taking quizzes is also another helpful feature that allow you to assess your comprehensive skill. Keep going guys with progressing this app through this technological age. I appreciate your wonderful work.
