Textploitation: Tiny Texts for Learning English

When learning a language, it is so important that you are reading a lot of different types of texts. One of the biggest challenges for any learner is finding those texts. Our aim is to provide our subscribers with a range of tiny texts so they can learn at their own pace, reading as many or as few as they want at any one time. 

Each text comes with a task so that while you're reading, you're also learning new grammar, vocabulary and skills. 

You can even leave a comment with your answers and your own texts to get feedback from us, and our amazing community of readers from around the world.
