The OPER difference
Natural reading

Oxford Progressive English Readers (OPER) employ the latest methods of text analysis, using specially designed software, to ensure that readability is carefully controlled.

OPER stories are easy for the average student at any given level to read. Students become accustomed to a natural, flowing style of reading. The need to interrupt their enjoyment of the story to look up difficult words or grammatical forms is minimized by the intelligent use of contextual clues and illustrations. Footnotes and other distractions are also eliminated. Students experience reading in its purest form, but always at a level they can manage.
