How it Works:

Students come to their local Families Learning Together site where they are pre-tested to assess their current level of English language skills (reading and listening).  Volunteers then work with the students one-to-one or in small groups to increase vocabulary, develop better reading and writing abilities, and practice speaking and listening.  Students are tested regularly to assess their advancement.
