Merit Question and Answer
Eleven year old needs help with vocabulary, spelling and comprehension.


Area of Concern: Vocabulary

Submitted by: Parent

Grade Level: ESL Students

Competency: Below Level

Reuben is eleven years old. We speak Afrikaans at home but he is in an English school. I would like to improve his vocabulary, spelling and comprehension.



We have helped many middle school students that speak English as a second language with improving their grammar and reading skills.

Our most popular program for these purposes are Vocabulary Fitness and Developing Critical Thinking Skills for Effective Reading.

Vocabulary Fitness helps students to master troublesome points of standard written English grammar, usage, and spelling.

Developing Critical Thinking Skills helps students improve their reading comprehension and develops their ability to make inferences. It is designed for students who read at a 5th to 8th grade level.
