USALearns.org Helps Immigrants To Learn English

According to the National Assessment of Adult Literacy, 11 million adults in the U.S. are not literate in English.

A new website called USALearns, launched by the U.S. Department of Education is trying to bridge this gap and help consumers to learn English.

Upon entering the site, users can choose directions in either English or Spanish and then pick which English level they need — beginner or intermediate. Once in the modules, the instruction is almost exclusively in English. In the beginner course, 20 units are offered in such areas as numbers, the calendar, places to go, families, schools, clothes, money and shopping.

With the recently redesigned English exam for US naturalization by immigration officials, USALearns.org is a free useful tool that anyone can use to improve their English skills. Libraries will have to include the website in the curriculum for English As a Second Language ( ESOL) classes and in their language learning Internet bookmarks.

    Please contact your local library and see if they are able to help with your questions about GED classes and registration. Very often public libraries run free GED and ESOL ( English as a Second Language) classes.
