Ingrid Alina Urgilés Armendariz, Wendy Maria Solórzano Parrales


This article explores the effective use of ReadEasy, an AI-based tool designed to support the development of reading skills in children with A1 levels. Over the challenges faced by young learners in mastering reading comprehension, vocabulary acquisition, and accurate pronunciation, ReadEasy surfaces as a promising tool offering a revolutionary approach. Adopting a mixed-methods design, the research focuses on evaluating the effectiveness of the use of ReadEasy as a helpful tool for developing reading skills. Twenty-five learners participated in the study. Actively participating in reading activities carefully integrated into the regular curriculum during an educational period, with additional follow-up to measure the long-term effect of reading skill development. The results evidenced an average increase of 35.77% in enhancing reading skills and as a result of this improvement, key factors such as the acquisition of new vocabulary, proper pronunciation, and motivation increased simultaneously, demonstrating the efficacy of ReadEasy as an essential tool in the Ecuadorian educational context. These findings emphasize the potential of ReadEasy in enhancing English language teaching, particularly in settings requiring modern and engaging approaches. This study presents renewed insights into the application of supporting tools such as ReadEasy in English teaching and recommends possibilities for future research in similar educational areas.
