    I forgot my glasses - Stories on adult literacy

    I forgot my glasses - Stories on adult literacy

    In Ireland, there is a hidden issue. One in six people has a problem understanding what they read. This means that over half a million people have a difficulty with everyday text, such as a bus timetable or medicine instructions. One in four people struggle with everyday maths such as working out a discount or adding up a bill. The good news is that there are lots of free learning opportunities available. 


    In this series you will meet some of the people who have changed their lives by returning to education and improving their literacy skills. They are people who want to catch up on the skills they missed at school, parents who want to help children with their homework, workers who would like to go for promotion or people who would simply like to write a letter or send an email. Improving adult literacy will help create a more inclusive Irish society.

Great to hear real people speaking about how literacy changes lives.

I really enjoyed hearing the voices of Chris, Lee, Michael and others telling us how adult learning had improved their lives. Inspiring stuff and I look forward to hearing more.
