    How does KnowbleReader work didactically?

    KnowbleReader has a proven learning effect through the use of contextual learning. You always see the words in their original context and get the chance to practise new vocabulary in the form of simple tasks.

     

    By focusing on reading news, KnowbleReader targets understanding of articles. This facilitates the memorisation of new words, which is a by-product of text comprehension.
