Are you an adult struggling to read?

Are you trying to learn English?

Do you know someone who is?

At Columbus Literacy Council, we can help. Many students are born right here in Central Ohio while others are from countries all around the globe. They are single or married, they are parents or grandparents. Some have jobs and some are looking for jobs. Others are stay-at-home mothers or fathers, or they might be retired. Some went to school for many years, while others did not have the opportunity. Our students come from all walks of life and they all have different reasons for becoming an adult learner. We pride ourselves in providing our students with a supportive place to learn and a flexible schedule to meet their needs.  We are here to help you reach your goals!

Check out what some of our students are saying:

“I’ve lived here for 30 years, but have always been dependent upon others because I have not learned English. I heard about the Literacy Council, but was embarrassed to go. Finally, I enrolled with a friend and started learning English. WOW has my life changed. Now, I can talk with my grandchildren in English. I can shop anywhere!  Columbus Council is a place that has helped me open new doors of opportunity!”

“I am a 33 year-old man.  I have a high school diploma. I have a family. AND, I have a secret…I cannot read!  Well, I could not read until I started getting help with Columbus Literacy Council.  I attend one-to-one sessions each week and improve my reading skills. I used to think this would never be possible for me. You know since the years of school did not help me become a reader, I really did not have much hope for learning. But, the tutors and staff really seemed positive about being able to help me, and today.. I can read! It’s amazing. I read small books and I read slowly; but, I’m getting better every day! Don’t think it’s too late for you because it’s not! Learn to read…it changes your life!”
