What is LearnFast's Fast ForWord Program?

Fast ForWord delivers 1-2 years gain in 40-60 hours of use for any struggling reader. It is an evidence-based, adaptive reading, language and cognitive program.

Fast ForWord offers a personalised pathway for each learner whether they’re struggling or gifted, and for anyone in between. It maximises everyone's achievement potential. 

This online program is effective for students aged from 7 years. 

How does Fast ForWord work?

Learners do online exercises 3-5 days a week for 6 weeks or more

Fast ForWord firstly builds brain connections for struggling learners. In as little as 6 - 8 weeks, their brains are re-wired to be better able to learn and read.

Then students practice language, reading and thinking skills, intensively.  So they make fast improvements. 

Every student has an individualised experience because the  exercises adapt to their performance. They get precise and efficient training targeted to their learning ‘sweet spot’.

Students start with easier concepts and questions and progress to harder ones. They receive immediate corrective feedback for every answer.

Game-based design features like counters and reward animations keep students motivated.

What are the benefits from Fast ForWord?

Students become more competent learners. They build learning capacity, so they understand more of what they are taught. And they grow in confidence, and belief in their own abilities.

Fast ForWord is not tutoring and it does not teach content from the curriculum.

It rewires the brain's pathways to make learning easier, and enables your brain to operate at its most efficient level ..... to be the best it can possibly be.

What is LearnFast's Reading Assistant Program?

Reading Assistant is an online guided reading-aloud coach.

Students do intensive reading aloud practice, with a virtual personal coach. Voice recognition technology delivers the one-on-one guided oral reading support.

Reading Assistant can be teamed with Fast ForWord or used as a stand-alone extension program.

Who is Reading Assistant for?

Reading Assistant is for students who have basic word recognition and decoding skills. And are now building vocabulary, fluency and comprehension. This includes students as young as preschoolers, all the way up to adults.

How does Reading Assistant work?

Reading Assistant models the correct reading of a passage to students as they read out loud. It uses speech verification technology to “listen” to students read, and corrects and supports them when they falter. 

The online Reading Assistant delivers:

Help When Students Need It: 
Reading Assistant acts as a patient, non-judgmental listener, giving support to all students as they need it.  

Increased Student Engagement: 
Students choose to read from a variety of interests and reading levels. They get frequent comprehension checks, so stay motivated.

How Reading Assistant Works

What are the benefits from Reading Assistant?

Students improve their vocabulary, comprehension and reading fluency.

They can see their own progress and track their own improvement on more than 300 reading selections. Readers can even listen to recordings of them reading and hear how much more fluent their reading has become since they started Reading Assistant.

They can practice reading aloud, with support from a patient non-judgmental coach. This is especially helpful for any readers who are sensitive to feedback they feel is critical of their ability.
