Summary/Abstract: The idea of learning to read for social purposes from the first stage of school is maintained in the article in exact agreement with contemporary educational policies at European and national level. The importance of language literacy in the modern civilization of knowledge and the phenomenon of reading as a base of acquiring language literacy are discussed. On this background the problems of beginning reading instructions in Bulgarian and in English are interpreted and a classification of literacy technologies for teaching primary students that is based on the specific character of the corresponding writing system is presented. Theoretical statements are illustrated with some technological instructions for “entering” reading in Bulgarian and in English.
