I Love Reading is a unique literacy program designed to facilitate the rapid learning of reading English. 

This program takes the complexity out of the English language and makes decoding words easier and faster by helping early learners to grasp the English language from a young age. 

The I Love Reading program takes the English Phonetic Code, technology developed by the Mamone family, and packages it into a practical and easily understood resource for literacy development.

Through the ILR program, students quickly move from 'Learning to Read' to 'Reading to Learn'. From here, the rate of learning increases and the learning environment becomes a place of engaged students exploring educational concepts, skills and ideas, years ahead of their expected levels.

We have developed a number of frameworks to support:


Educators implementing the ILR program into their learning spaces.

Early Learning

Early Childhood educators who have the opportunity to expose children to reading concepts through play.


Parents who wish to encourage and support their child on the journey of learning to read.

Tutors & Other Educators

Tutors who teach individual or small groups of students including those of ESL backgrounds.

Why choose ILR?

ILR is leading a new learning paradigm which challenges the slow transition of school systems from the archaic industrial model to the 21st Century digitally enabled learning environment.

About ILR

How ILR works

ILR utilises a unique colour and number system to identify the key phonetic sounds in the English language. English language has numerous and conflicting rules for reading and spelling.

The ILR Program supports young readers on their journey to literacy. 

Cooper is currently 6 years of age and completing Year 1. He is reading at an advanced level; with a reading age of 11 years. The English Phonetic Code not only allows Cooper to read and decode words more easily, it also helps him develop a deeper understanding of what he is reading. This will help him as he moves from 'Learning to Read' to 'Reading to Learn'.


In this video we see Nia explain the English Phonetic Code.

Nia particularly enjoys mysteries and developing her skills with the ILR program, allows her to read in per passion with fluency, expression and understanding.
