We have a few ESL students, and we don’t know what to do with them. They don’t want to go to college.  They don’t really have academic goals beyond our program. Though they’re too advanced to be in ESL classes, their reading and writing skills are still remedial. Their needs involve job-related reading and writing. We are helping them prepare for the TABE test. What software could help them make this huge transition?



Merit Software often helps students and instructors in adult education and workforce settings. ESL students practicing for the TABE test extra help understanding skill-related questions and answers.
It might be useful for your ESL students to practice their reading comprehension and grammar skills first by using the reading and grammar lessons in the English Intermediate Web Suite.   Specifically, working on Reading Skill Builder and Grammar Rules and Review
There are hundreds of critical-thinking and problem-solving activities that ESL students can try at their own pace, as well as content that relate reading and writing to workforce communication skills.  Lessons in the English Intermediate Web Suite go from a 5th through 8th grade level.
