The Reading Room - Free Online Reading Comprehension Practice

The Reading Room gives you the opportunity to practice your reading skills and improve your vocabulary.

As you read the articles and stories try to understand the general meaning. Use the True/False questions at the end to test your understanding and receive instant feedback.

If you are unsure of the meaning of any word, first try to guess its meaning from the way it has been used. You may check your guess by double-clicking the word to read its definition.
