Adult learning activities

This website is part of the California Distance Learning Project and the project has been sponsored by  the California Department of Education.
As they say:
"The purpose of this site is to help adults improve basic skills like reading and spelling using real-life stories on topics of interest to adults" And I would add that some of them are also interesting for young learners . There is a section for teachers and adult educators too.

It has lots of listening and reading comprehension activities, matching and spelling exercises,  and a section I specially like, " What did you learn?" where you can check your understanding of what you have read.  The stories are based on real life situations and the original TV news story is included for some of them in video.

It's very easy to use and a great help for both, adults and teenagers, who want to learn English.
