Become a great all-round communicator with ICS
Effective reading, writing, speaking and listening skills are so important over the period of a normal day. For example, you may need to ask for, and note down directions; you may even be required to fill in some forms at the post office.
Our Adult Literacy course will help you learn how to read and understand text, write to communicate, and how best to speak, listen, and respond in certain situations in next to no time at all. In fact, thanks to the great range of topics you cover and the way the course has been designed, you'll be fully prepared to use your new skills in practical situations almost straight away.
So whatever you need to improve your literacy skills for, ICS can help you achieve your goals in one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways. Your new skills could even help you get the job you really want.

What our students say
"The course materials were very easy to work through and clearly set out. Whenever I needed to speak to someone at ICS, I received good information and all the support I needed throughout my course. I would definitely recommend ICS - in fact I already have and I hope to take another course in the near future"
