According to USA.gov, Americans are acculturated to be “lifelong learners.” Americans are constantly improving their skills with ongoing educational opportunities, even if it means getting back behind school desks. The message drawn from this on-line educational site is that even new immigrants to the USA should begin to understand the importance of continuing education.
The web-site offers free programming designed to improve students’ English skills, including reading, writing, speaking and other life skills. The website also offers information to help guide users to educational programming for adults in their particular geographic area. The website also offers a list of literacy programs available from the Office of Vocational and Adult Education.
In addition the office supplies a publication called “Teaching Adults to Read,” which can be helpful to educators dealing with the adult community.
