Merit Question and Answer
55 Year Old Adult Needs to Practice English Reading and Writing


Area of Concern: Reading Fundamentals

Submitted by: Teacher

Grade Level: ESL Students

Competency: Below Level

I have a student who is a 55 year old home health worker. She is comfortable reading books in Spanish or getting help in English with reading correspondence. She learned to speak English from years of working in people’s homes, but cannot read or write well. How can you help?



Merit has helped many older students improve their reading and writing skills. Our best programs for this purpose are Grammar Fitness Basic and Reading Skill Builder.

Grammar Fitness helps students master troublesome points of English while tracking pupil progress. Built-in hints and tips, along with immediate feedback teach students while they work.

Reading Skill Builder focuses on key reading skills such as main idea, sequence, fact-opinion, and vocabulary in content. Students progress is also tracked in an easy-to-use management system.

Good luck!
