Learn

The Winnebago County Literacy Council can help you read, write and speak English.

  • Do you want to be able to read and fill out the paperwork from school, the bank, your job or the doctors?
  • Do you want to better understand your boss or landlord?
  • Do you want to read a story to your child?

You can work one-to-one with a tutor, or you can attend one of our many programs and classes. Tutors, programs and classes, and books are provided for FREE. To have a tutor or attend our English as a Second Language class, you must undergo an assessment to determine the area of need for improvement.

Send an email to Angie at fralish@winlit.org to get started.

Sia Sian came to the United States as a young adult from Bogoli, Burma. In less than one year after arriving in the United States, she obtained her driver's license, passed the Accuplacer (a prerequisite for attending nursing school), and enrolled in the nursing program at Fox Valley Technical College, where she made the Dean's List. She obtained funding for her education through a Wal-Mart grant, on her own initiative, and is also studying Spanish. Her goal is to obtain an advanced nursing degree, while working in the field as an RN.
