OUP launches a new Asia-specific reading scheme for children


ISLAMABAD: Oxford University Press (OUP) launched Dragonfly Readers—its innovative 9 level reading series aimed at helping young learners of English develop good reading habits and become motivated readers. The distinctive feature of these illustrated anthologies is that they are infused with Asian themes and values helping learners explore the unity and diversity of Asian cultures.

Covering both fiction and non-fiction texts written by Asian authors, the series is designed with non-native English language learners in mind and includes extensive teacher support materials.

At the launch event, OUP also introduced Oxford Reading Buddy—a next-generation digital reading service that offers a host of digital tools and unique inbuilt coaching feature to help students develop reading comprehension skills.
