Why it matters

The Reading Challenge

Too many people can't read

English is a complex language with multiple rules and letters which don't play fair. Many readers face decoding issues and cognitive overload, and traditional reading systems often fail to help.

Nardagani can help

Nardagani teaches readers to match sounds to symbols in a simple, uncomplicated way that results in successful decoding and increased fluency, pronunciation and reading comprehension.

Designed for challenged readers

The Nardagani Symbols

There are 26 letters in the English language. 12 say their name, 14 don't play fair and 17 letters are sometimes silent. Using 12 simple symbols placed under letters to help "sound them out", the Nardagani program helps eliminate the guesswork involved in reading. Once students learn the meaning of each symbol, they can see at-a-glance how the letter and word should be pronounced. By the end of the program, readers should be able to read even when the symbols are taken away.


Simple and intuitive

Nardagani Lessons

Our online reading program includes three hours of interactive teacher training and the student lesson series. The lessons contain fun, interactive exercises and games to learn the symbols. In addition, there are many short, engaging coded books to practice reading using the symbols, usually for a total of 15 lessons. Once the student has gained confidence in sounding out words, the symbols are no longer needed, like training wheels on a bicycle.

Students may download and print the lesson materials and coded practice books or, for ease of use, order them in bound form from this website or from Amazon.

Nardagani instructors are available to help answer questions and provide program support.


Friends, family, tutors and teachersTeaching the Nardagani Program

Although some students might be able to learn the Nardagani Program on their own, we recommend support from a Teacher or Tutor who has been trained via the Nardagani Teacher Training program. Learning is enhanced if accompanied by a Homework Buddy who, under the guidance of the Teacher/Tutor, helps with reading exercises between lessons.

On a selective basis, the Nardagani team can assist in teaching Nardagani, finding Nardagani teachers and/or certifying Nardagani instructors.
