Reading Mate

Use Reading Mate to check whether a text has an appropriate level of vocabulary for you. As well as checking the level of a text, this tool can highlight words you are not likely to know, and pick out some important information. Teachers may also find Reading Mate useful to help simplify texts with difficult vocabulary. Reading Mate assumes that a vocabulary size of 9000 word families is enough to deal with most academic texts in English.
