Hey,
I see that Apple have an ap (for the IELTS exam) which helps students read quickly. A text is displayed and every second the words disappear (beginning from the beginning of the text and continuing onwards). The object of this is to help learners skim read.

Does anyone know of an internet site which offers the same type of programme which could be used in the classroom with learners?
Cheers,
Stuart
