Free Beginning Reading Class For Adults

The Center 4Life learning at the United Methodist Church of Sun City Center, located at 1971 Haverford Ave. in Sun City Center, is offering a free Beginning Reading for Adults class. If you know an English-speaking adult who grew up in the United States but never learned to read, please tell them about the class. An adult who never learned to read possesses a vast knowledge base through day-to-day living and working, which is used by the highly qualified instructor to teach each student to read. This will be a small class of one to four students.
