With Sagor och Sanningar students can practice reading comprehension, oral interaction and written skills, while being generally educated and gaining a rich vocabulary.

The main texts are factual texts that have worldwide themes that permeate all exercises. Each text has both a historical and current perspective that inspires discussion. Each factual text also includes a classic fairy tale to practice the narrative genre. Since the factual text is about Dinosaurs, for example, the saga is in the same theme of Saint Göran and the dragon.

Fairy tales and truths practice three skills: reading comprehension, oral interaction and written skills. The language is developed and words and concepts are repeated so that the student can fully acquire the language. 

The chapters are divided into parts: Reading comprehension, word comprehension, grammar and writing.

Each chapter begins with a descriptive factual text with reading comprehension questions in three levels to show the student how to practice strategies to gain a deeper understanding of the text.
