Through our participation in the Adult Literacy XPRIZE Communities Competition, we’re excited to offer free access to two award-winning apps for our students to practice their English literacy skills.
While these learning apps will not replace one-to-one tutoring or ESL courses, we hope students will use them to supplement their learning beyond the classroom this summer. They are recommended for beginner- and intermediate-level ESL learners, and make learning fun with a variety of grammar practices, math puzzles, and reading comprehension lessons. Both apps are free to download and install, and are available 24/7 at your convenience.
In addition to helping you practice English, your use of the apps could help LVGW win a cash award. The Adult Literacy XPRIZE Communities Competition is a national competition that challenges organizations and individuals to recruit adults to use learning apps to improve their English language literacy skills.
Despite LVGW being one of the smaller organizations in the Communities Competition, our reach is broad. With a bit of help from friends near and far we’ve got a real shot at the award money, which would go so far in helping us secure our ESOL programming, opportunities and resources. But even if we don’t get the most downloads for the award, we still win because we’ve gained a new tool to make it easier for our students to practice English language literacy skills and participate in their community.”
