How can an adult get A.R.R.O.W.® help?
Your local college may be using A.R.R.O.W.® - contact them and find out. If A.R.R.O.W.® is not available at college, A.R.R.O.W.® help can be given through a Distance Learning Program.
What do adults like about A.R.R.O.W.®?
Adults like the success it gives them in reading, writing, speaking and listening. They feel very happy with the adult material used in the programs. Adults like the self-pacing, independent learning and non-classroom ethos when meeting A.R.R.O.W.®. Many adults prefer to work completely alone, reading, recording and checking their work with little need for help from other people.
What adults say...
Mark: "It's more relaxed... It helps because it's your own voice. I can read much quicker now."
Richard: "It definitely helps me learn better... I'm able to work on my own... my voice means something more."
John: "I know now that when I am around streets or places, I can understand things better...I am getting there..."
Millions of adults have literacy problems. These problems have held back their chances in later life. Many adults have tried other learning methods at schools or colleges without great success. Now adults throughout the country have found that A.R.R.O.W.® can quickly help them improve literacy and speech skills. Adults have used A.R.R.O.W.® in Colleges, Learning Centres, Job Training Centres, the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and in the Home.
Does it take a long time to improve?
Adults report that they have never met a faster system than A.R.R.O.W.®. Adults using A.R.R.O.W.® even make greater and faster reading spelling and writing progress than any other group of A.R.R.O.W.® students. Adults can sustain their attention/work rate longer than younger students and find that listening to their own voice (the Self-Voice ®) is of great help. A first course of 7-10 hours will immediately show improvement in an adult’s reading, spelling, listening and writing skills. Short A.R.R.O.W. learning sessions of 20 minutes are required, ideally delivered 4-5 times per week. A total of 7-10 hours of training (one complete program) is usually needed to show progress although very positive results have been observed after only 2-3 hours. It is suggested that 3-4 programs will make the most of an adult’s learning skills.
