Review for Planetread, Piedmont, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

PlanetRead has been working tirelessly for years to share the evidence that same-language subtitling really makes an impact on reading ability and to raise awareness of the need to add SLS to all media content in all languages. More and more people know about their work, and I hope that the word continues to spread. Thanks for your simple, scalable literacy efforts, PlanetRead!

Rating: 5 stars  

PlanetRead's work using same-language subtitles for literacy has expanded greatly in the past year to encompass not just SLS for film songs on television but also SLS for animated books in an early-grade reading initiative. This simple idea can make such a big difference for people of all ages struggling to become competent readers in a world that demands literacy. I'm thrilled to support the work of this great nonprofit!

PlanetRead's work to expand literacy in India has taken Brij Kothari's beautifully simple idea and made it part of the daily lives of millions of early literates in India. I love that the organization continually monitors the impact of its work and creates research reports proving the efficacy of same-language subtitling. It's wonderful to know that this inexpensive, simple, scalable tool is helping beginning readers to become fully literate! Helping the PlanetRead team to publicize their good work is a real privilege.
