I know of ELL adult educators wo use Starfall to teach basic English reading skills, and my 5 year old is currently learning how to read on this site. He loves the little stories and the "games." It is simple, slightly interactive and it really gets to the root of early reading. It allows readers to click on any word to hear the pronounciation broken down into sounds and it really helps to teach sight words. I highly recommend it for those learning how to read!
