About Reading Horizons, Maryruth said:
"How amazing to finally have a phonics program that is proving itself for both ESL and EFL Students. I finally have materials to use in my Linguistics 377 training course that provide my interns with a specific phonics skill for their international internships. This program allows them to use and then leave with their students and bi-lingual teachers a valuable pronunciation and reading fluency system."
