Improve Your Basic Skills

Spanish speakers can build their basic skills in reading, writing, and math with the resources found in Mejore sus Habilidades Básicas.

The skill builders in reading, writing, and math go from Level 1 (lowest) to Level 3 (highest). These practice sets, used together with the tutorials and eBooks, will help you build a foundation of the basic skills you need to be workforce or high-school equivalency ready.

Each instantly-scored skill builder gives you a snapshot of your knowledge and abilities at that level and recommends your next step based on your scores.

  1. To get the most out of the skill-building resources available to you, it's recommended that you start out by taking the first set of diagnostic tests based on the TABE® (Tests of Adult Basic Education). When you're done with each diagnostic test, you'll learn your skill level and get personalized skill-building recommendations.
  2. Based on your diagnostic recommendations, start with the Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3 skill builders in reading, writing, or math, or the practices in grammar and vocabulary and spelling.
  3. You can use these tutorials at any time to help you through difficult concepts as you build your skills in any of these areas: You can pick a specific lesson or just start from the beginning of a tutorial.
  4. When you've worked your way through the tutorials and skill builders, take the second set of diagnostic tests based on the TABE® to see how much you've improved!
