USA Learns.

On November 7, the Department's Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE) officially launched USA Learns (http://www.usalearns.org/), a web site providing the approximately 11 million adults who have low levels of English proficiency with accessible and free English language training. The launch of the site completes one of the goals in President Bush's August 2007 announcement of 26 immigration reforms his Administration would pursue within existing law, including the assimilation of new citizens and helping immigrants learn English to expand their opportunities in America. Upon entering the site, users can choose directions in either English or Spanish and then pick which level they need: beginner or immediate. Once inside the modules, the instruction is almost exclusively in English. For more information, please go to http://www.ed.gov/news/pressreleases/2008/11/11072008.html.
