About King Street

King Street is an integrated, structured phonics-based reading programme for adult and teenage learners which can be used by trained teachers as well as volunteer and support staff. This carefully graded reading scheme provides opportunities for practice in all the underpinning skills necessary to produce a competent reader.

The collection consists of four sets of books with accompanying exercises. 35 readers in total across 4 reading levels: 10 x Level 1, 10 x Level 2, 10 x Level 3 and 5 x Level 4.

“What a breath of fresh air! Beginning readers with simple, easy to access words that still dealt with adult themes. A wonderful set of books, which my ESOL group are thoroughly enjoying.”

Karen Unwin, ESOL Tutor

“We’re finding the King Street collection brilliantly useful, volunteers and students are really taking to them.”

Tracey Bose, CEO, Got to Read
