The Laubach Way to Reading series is a four–level, time–tested method that has taught millions of adults to read. It is ideal for adult learners who have little or no reading skills and require a uniform, step–by–step approach to reading. Use in conjunction with the Laubach Way to English teacher manuals for ESL students.

The Laubach method was developed specifically to help adults with limited or no reading skills achieve success and become confident readers. This structured, phonics–based series works even with learners who have had negative experiences with other reading programs.

Laubach Way to Reading is based on Dr. Frank Laubach's years of research in teaching adults. The series begins with establishing the letter–sound relationships through the use of one–of–a–kind phonics charts. Then, learners progress step–by–step from the known—spoken words, to the unknown—written words.
