Welcome to the Amrita Learning Reading App, especially designed for Adults. The Amrita app is a finalist in the Barbara Bush Foundation Adult Literacy XPRIZE Competition.
Lessons start with learning letter sounds and continue to multi-page stories and articles, with vocabulary support in English and Spanish.
The Amrita app features:
- Complete instruction of the alphabet sounds and of word-building skill with short, engaging videos.
- Reading curriculum that features a series of stories interwoven with factual Life Skills passages.
- Learning games, activities and music within reading passages.
- Reading Library with fun and interesting stories and articles with 2 special sections on self-empowerment articles and Read-with-your-child stories.
The content is structured into two locales: ESL (English as a Second Language) and NS (Native Speaker). Upon entering the program, the learner is assigned to one of the locales depending on their native language. Within each locale, small learning units are sequenced that build on previously learned skills. Specific skills to decode words, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension are emphasized. The materials in the two locales are designed very differently, but both stress the use of engaging material to reduce the high dropout rate that has plagued adult learning programs.
