Award for woman learning to read in her 60s

Moon Lim Englefield celebrated her 65th birthday yesterday by being announed winner of the NIACE South East Regional Individual Learner Award, as part of Adult Learners’ Week 2013. Moon began to learn to read with Linda Curtis from Gosport literacy charity Read and Grow, using the ‘Yes We Can Read’ teaching tool. Within weeks Moon could read basic books but what excited her most was being able to read road signs and television programme titles. “I have learned to read at a late age in life, but it has made so much difference to me,” said Moon. Congratulations, Moon!
