English phonics student David Wright

Sixty-one-year-old David Wright didn’t do well at school and, as a result, had limited reading and writing ability – but that has changed after he joined a six-month English phonics course.

David said: “In just six months my reading and writing has really improved – I can pick up a newspaper and read some of it and when I went on holiday by train recently I was able to stand on the platform and read the names of all the stops – it felt fantastic!

“And I can send emails and texts now which just a few months ago was unimaginable!

“I hid my problem from people for years and it really affected my confidence – but I’m not so shy now and I’m not frightened of words anymore.”

David will be returning to college in September and progressing to the next level of the course.
