Although many doors open to language learners when they gain English skills, LCNV’s adult learners aren’t just learning for their own benefit. November is Family Literacy Month, a perfect time to focus on the significance of adult English education for all ages. When adults can read and communicate in English, their children succeed. LCNV learner Jimmy’s 2015 essay exemplifies this perfectly, as he reflects on his new bond with his grandson through reading. Read about his progress below.

“I have hopes and dreams to read to my grandchildren and read out loud in public one day. I have struggled with reading most of my life [but] I am making progress now and I can read short stories to my grandson. In the future I hope to read my birthday card out loud in public and read long storybooks to my grandchildren.”
