About us

The most successful reading efficiency training concept in the world

Improved Reading is the market leader in adult reading courses for professionals and students. Our concept has been globally and continuously optimised over the last 40 years.

About Improved ReadingWhat makes Improved Reading so special is our compact, practice-oriented and logically structured training concept for eliminating the bad reading habits that people have been using for most of their lives. Instead of simply focusing on speed reading, it shows participants how reading at a faster rate also improves comprehension. The course exercises, some of which are performed with a special piece of apparatus, are designed for intensive eye movement training during the reading process.

The only global reading efficiency programme

Improved Reading is the only global organisation providing an academically sound and individually measurable reading efficiency programme both directly and via its licensed regional business partners. Universities and corporate enterprises in many countries around the globe have empirically analysed and confirmed the effectiveness of Improved Reading courses.
