Fast Track to Reading: Accelerated Learning for EFL and ESOL Students Fast Track to Reading is an accelerated reading programme designed for adult learners of English who are not readily able to read the Roman alphabet. It can be used for students who cannot read at all and for students who cannot cope with reading at speed. It is designed for adult learners of English who already have a concept of reading: those who can read and write in a linear phonetic language such as Arabic or Farsi, and those who are conversant with pictographic languages such as Mandarin or Cantonese. However, it can also be used with students who have yet to gain a concept of reading. Fast Track to Reading can be used before starting a course where reading is an integral element, or as a reading element in parallel with a simple starter-level course. In mixed ability classes where only some students are unfamiliar with the English alphabet, the programme can be used for self-study outside class.

Key Features * Designed to facilitate decoding of Roman script * For students who are learning to read in English and for students who cannot cope with reading at speed * Accelerates learning in a programmed manner * Can be used in parallel with a simple starter-level English course * Contains global reading to enhance relevance and motivation * Audio CD for further self-study or homework * Comprehensive teaching notes * Introduction in four different languages: Arabic, Farsi, Mandarin and Urdu Contents include: * short vowels and consonants, * two letter representing one sound, * long vowels, * consonant clusters, * vowel + consonant + vowel, * the names of the letters, * long vowels and their relation to consonants, * alternative vowel sounds for the same spelling, * silent letters Video clip: Peter Viney, author of Fast Track to Reading, talks about how the book can be used and teaches a demonstration lesson.

Peter Viney started teaching English in 1971, after a research MA in English and American Studies. He is the co-author of many popular textbook series in both British English and American English, including Streamline English, New American Streamline, Grapevine, Main Street, Survival English, Basic Survival, Handshake and IN English. He is the co-author with his wife, Karen Viney, of thirteen video courses, including the English Channel series, the Grapevine Video series, Mystery Tour, Only in America, A Weekend Away and A Week By The Sea, as well as the ELT adaptations of Wallace and Gromit in A Grand Day Out, The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave. He is also the author of self-study video-led materials. Peter was series editor of the Storylines series of graded readers, as well as the author of the Departures in Reading and Connections in Reading supplementary series for developing basic reading skills. He has written many graded readers for the Storylines series, as well as Striker! in the Penguin Readers series, and he has maintained a major interest in extensive reading. Peter co-wrote Learn English Handwriting and Basic English Reading Programme in the 1980s, designed to teach initial writing and reading to students from non-Roman alphabet cultures. Peter revisited this area with Fast Track to Reading (Garnet Education 2009). He has lectured and conducted teacher training seminars in many countries, and lives in Poole, UK.
