I have used Read Ahead in entirely virtual and face-to-face Intermediate Spanish reading instruction. My students enjoyed learning this way because the program really boosted their reading confidence! The program provides great scaffolding and support. It chunks the text to make it less intimidating, zooms in on key information, hovers over words a reader is unsure of and provides definitions, and makes new text more approachable. I incorporated Read Ahead into every module I taught. It created a seamless flow between assigned readings and learning activities like videos and interactive questions. My students had a really positive response to this.
