Though there are lots of free resources available on the Internet, not all are suited for use with lower-level adult learners. Resources should positively support learning goals with adult-oriented content.

Try to select resources that will stimulate learning success, critical analysis, and the ability to make informed judgments. Avoid using materials with child-oriented graphics and content that may be demeaning or irrelevant to adults. Consider adapting resources or creating new ones.

Recommendations for websites will be an ongoing process. All URLs cited were confirmed as of June 2023. However, it is likely that a number of URLs will become outdated as time goes by. We suggest that if you find a web page is no longer available, you try to shorten the URL or go to the home page. If a link is broken, please let us know at volunteer@readnb.ca.

We hope you enjoy using this guide, and if you know or hear of any other free adult-relevant resources, please let me know!
