There are 23 million adults in the United States with limited English proficiency. Many English learners frequently interact with English speakers at work, at the grocery store, and at their children’s schools, and research shows that increased exposure to English leads to an increase in proficiency. However, a lack of confidence and a fear of failure often prevent recent immigrants from taking advantage of these interactions to improve their English. Through a combination of practical conversational content and daily speaking challenges, Práctica helps learners transform these everyday conversations into low-risk learning opportunities that boost both their confidence and their English proficiency.
