Congrats to all grads!" -Cassidy #Motivation

Adult learners who are not literate in their native language find it more difficult to learn, read, and speak fluently in a second language.
Formal education isn’t always an option for Latino immigrants, especially adults. Teaching native-language literacy first can significantly increase the percentage of Latino immigrants who feel confident enrolling and succeeding in English language classes and other adult education classes. Learning to read and write in one’s primary language is vital to success in the workplace, managing health care, and raising a family.
