A great deal of attention has been placed on designing approaches to deal with language and literacy issues at secondary institutions and limited research has been done at tertiary institutions.
The strategies employed to aid children and adolescents have been used in tertiary institutions but have not been very effective.
Therefore, this experimental study was designed to
implement language and comprehension strategies
for adult learners and adult educators to increase
their performance in literacy and comprehension.
Implementing language related strategies is a crucial area of research that is lacking at the university where I work. There are many concerns about the inconsistencies adult learners produce to be successful in their courses and to attain meaningful employment after graduation. Therefore, more research needs to be done to highlight strategies that can be executed for these learners to achieve competence in their literacy skills.
