Most research and practice in second language learning supports the theory that literacy in one language assists literacy development in another language.
Reading and Literacy
Literacy is a fundamental skill that unlocks learning and provides individuals with the means to pursue knowledge and enjoyment independently. Literacy skills need to grow and mature over the course of every person’s life, giving each individual the reading, writing and thinking skills needed for success in academic, workforce and personal situations. Unfortunately for many people, literacy skills never develop in the necessary ways. Insufficient literacy skills exclude far too many children, adolescents, and adults from pursuing their academic, career, and life goals. AIR's reading and literacy work spans all ages and grades, from early childhood to adulthood, and focuses on literacy in school and in the workplace, both in the U.S. and abroad.
