ADULT EDUCATION LEARNING CENTRE FOR READING AND WRITING IN LAGOS STATE.

I warmly welcome you to our Adult Education Program for Reading, Writing, Speaking, Spelling and Listening in Gbagada, Lagos State in Nigeria.

We lay emphasis on helping adults learn how to read and write in English Language. We aims at offering lifelong learning opportunities for people through different modes of learning such sound sessions, spelling sessions, reading sessions, writing sessions and speaking classes among others.

We help adults function well in society, manage their business and relate well in the society.

Adult education goes beyond merely teaching adults how to read and write (adult literacy). It allows adults to enhance acquired knowledge, skills and attitudes or obtain new ones. It also provides adults with the opportunity to be retrained.

Our teaching philosophy is based on our understanding that learning should be learner-centred rather than teacher-centred; the teacher acts only as a guide in the learning environment. We seek to stimulate problem-oriented, critical, and interdisciplinary approaches to our activities. Therefore, students are provided with the opportunity to let their curiosity direct their learning. They do this by having access to hands-on activities. Our desire is to continue educating adult educators to function in all sectors of society.

We run literacy classes for adults at different levels. Some participants have moved on to study diploma and degree programmes in Nigeria and outside the shores of this country.

Currently our training centre is located in Gbagada, Lagos, where we meet every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

We encourage you to enrol in our programme and enjoy one of the best teaching and learning experiences at the Symmetric Adult Education, Lagos.

FOREVER LEARNING

In our fast-paced society, we can easily feel overwhelmed by the idea of learning something new, especially as we get older.

But the truth is, it’s never too late to learn something new. In this post, I’ll be discussing why it’s important to keep learning no matter how old we are and how we can make sure that we stay open to learning throughout our lives.

Why it's important to keep learning

Learning is essential for success and personal development. Learning can help us expand our knowledge and grow into a more intelligent and well-rounded person. It helps us understand the world around us and stay informed about what's happening. It also gives us the skills to develop new ideas, create better solutions to problems, and become more productive in our daily lives.

When we learn, we not only gain valuable knowledge but also learn how to think differently, approach situations with fresh perspectives, and sharpen our problem-solving skills. We become better equipped to deal with life’s challenges, become better leaders and team members, and be successful in whatever path we choose. Learning also helps us build self-confidence and develop healthier habits such as goal setting, planning, and perseverance.

Furthermore, learning can open doors to new opportunities that can take us in a different direction or bring us closer to achieving our dreams. Learning helps us stay competitive in the job market and continually update our skill set to stay relevant in today’s rapidly changing environment. By continuously learning, we are able to keep growing and learning even more and remain ahead of the game.

Ultimately, learning is key to personal growth and development. It gives us a sense of purpose and a feeling of accomplishment when we are able to acquire a new skill or understanding. Learning should never stop; it should be ongoing throughout our lives.

LEARNING TO SPELL FOR ADULTS

Not all adults have perfect spelling skills. In fact, many have developed bad spelling habits over the years. This is even more so the case today given the nature of communication on social media networks and mobile texting.

Abbreviations are common in order to save space in posts and message chains and people ignore English capitalization and punctuation rules. It’s also the case that individuals who left school early may simply have missed out on learning how to spell in the first place.

And while spelling is only one aspect of productive language knowledge, it tends to be a rather obvious one. You may not know what a word means, but when you misspell something, everyone notices.

Spelling is not a reflection of intelligence. Nonetheless, it is still necessary to know how to spell in order to be successful in academic and work endeavours. Having poor spelling skills in English can cause an adult to be judged negatively by others.

They may lose out on job or career advancement opportunities and often will experience feelings of embarrassment and low self-esteem. Worse still, poor spelling skills can cause individuals not to reach their full potential at school and in life.

This is because when a young adult finds certain words hard to spell, they may rely on more common and less specific vocabulary in writing, or avoid writing altogether. Their written work can appear over-simplified and may not reflect the true extent of their vocabulary.

While it may be embarrassing to practice spelling as an adult, an intervention is often required as it is not a skill that will fix itself. Learning to spell involves targeted work, including repetition and transcription exercises.

Enrollment in a basic adult education course at Symmetric Adult School is recommended, particularly if poor reading skills are also a factor.

SPELLING TIPS

- Know the rules. They aren’t consistent and there are plenty of exceptions, but it’s still worth learning some spelling rules in English. When you learn a rule, be sure to review a set of common examples that demonstrate it, as well as words that break the rule. You may decide to pick up a page of English text and underline all of the words that conform to the rule. When you’re done, look for the exceptions, as you are sure to find a few!

- Study Dolch Words. Also called Sight Words, these are among the most frequent words in English and account for up to 50% of most texts. They include prepositions, verbs, adjectives, articles and adverbs and overlearning them will allow you to spend more time learning the spelling of harder, less frequent vocabulary.

- Recognize prefixes and suffixes. When one or two letters appear at the start of a word and change the meaning in a consistent way, it is called a prefix. For example, re- means to do something again, such as review, regenerate, reiterate. A suffix added to the end of a word functions in a similar way. For example, we use –s or –es to make a noun plural. English is full of common suffixes and prefixes that you can learn. Familiarizing yourself with them will help you to see the various parts of a word and improve your spelling.

- Read as often as you can. Every language has common combinations of consonants and vowels. The more you read, the more you will be exposed to them and the more familiar they will become. It’s easier to learn the spelling of a word that you already recognize.

- Look for patterns. The human brain is very good at spotting patterns. If you present it with examples of words that contain a similar letter combination, you can learn English spelling rules indirectly. Try taking a highlighter and underlining words with the same or similar spelling across a newspaper page. Next, see if you can write out a rule that describes what you see. Acquiring rules in this way makes them easier to remember, thanks to the extra cognitive energy you expend figuring them out on your own.

- Use mnemonics. Hard to spell words can sometimes lend themselves to visual or auditory cues that create a more robust memory. For example, the word Wednesday can be tricky to spell because the d is silent. To help you spell it correctly, you might picture a bride and think that she is to be wed on Wednesday.

- Spell out loud. Sometimes spelling a word aloud can make it easier for people with learning difficulties who struggle to put letters down on paper. Create a list of words that you want to learn and practice spelling them while you are in the shower or on your way to work. Speaking them and hearing yourself say each letter will create auditory memories that are especially helpful for individuals who are not visual learners.

- Research the origin of words. English is a Germanic language but it has adopted vocabulary from various other languages that it came into contact with over the years. For example, it contains plenty of words of French origin thanks to the Normans having ruled England for a few hundred years. When you research where a word comes from, you may see similar spelling patterns for other words with the same origin, such as Greek words, which tend to be found in science related vocabulary.

- Take a multi-sensory approach. When you learn the spelling of a word and encode it physically, as is the case in handwriting or touch-typing, you are adding muscle memory to the process. The more you generate a word, the more likely it is that you automatize its spelling.

How do you teach reading skills to adults?

Building confidence is key to helping anyone learn to read whether they are an adult or a child. Focus on what the adult does know how to read. The more you can show the student that he or she is capable of reading, the easier it will be. Build off what the person knows and help them to see that they can do this.

Teaching Methods to Promote Reading Skills in Adults

This is a detailed lesson on the five basic principles used to promote reading skills in adults. We will break down reading comprehension and what type of instructional strategies are needed to engage adult non-readers.

Reading is a basic skill needed in many aspects of life. It makes a person able to participate more easily in society, gain access to health care, and obtain gainful employment.

Teaching Methods
Adult literacy educators will use five basic reading instructional areas according to the National Reading Association: Alphabetics, comprehension, fluency, vocabulary, and assessment. This lesson explains each area in detail.

- Teaching Alphabetics
We as readers use phonemes, which are basic sounds of spoken language. Graphemes are the written letters we use to represent those sounds. We use word analysis to connect phonemes (basic sounds) with graphemes (written letters) or letter combination. This process is called alphabetics. Phonemic awareness and word analysis are two big problems in adult non-readers. They struggle with applying letter-sound knowledge to understand new or unfamiliar words.

Alphabetics is taught using different oral exercises. For example, asking the adult to identify the common sounds in the words, 'grill,' 'gone,' and 'gate', or what the word 'bring' would be without the 'b'? (ring). Teaching alphabetics helps adult non-readers to master phonemic awareness and word analysis so they can manipulate phonemes (basic sounds) to form syllables, blends, and words.

- Teaching Fluency
Fluency is being able to read quickly while understanding the meaning of what you are reading. Less fluent readers spend a lot of time decoding words and sentences, which is why it is difficult to understand the overall text. The best teaching practice for fluency is repeated reading aloud with immediate feedback from the instructor. The instructor may comment on the speed and accuracy levels and help with difficult words.

- Teaching Vocabulary
We use only about 10,000 words in spoken English, while in writing we use at least a million! If an adult non-reader comes across vocabulary (words in a language), that they don't know the meaning of, their comprehension of the text will be interrupted. Even if they can sound out the word correctly, they will have trouble putting the surrounding words together into meaningful sentences.

- Teaching Reading Comprehension
When we read a text, we are able to comprehend, or interpret the meaning or message without speaking to the writer. Unconsciously or sometimes purposefully, we use comprehension strategies as a critical thinking tool.

- Using Assessments
Assessments are used to monitor a reader's progress. They are not a form of teaching but are crucial in measuring the outcomes of the activities presented. Assessment tools are wide ranging, from standardized tests to observation. Instructors need them to determine the student's ongoing reading skill level and how to address it - can the student move on to more advanced learning or do they need to review? Students are assessed in formal and informal situations.

Lesson Summary
There are five connected teaching methods used to help adult non-readers obtain basic reading skills. The methods are connected and require similar instructional strategies:
