Welcome to Literacy Network

If English is difficult for you, we can help you.

We provide lessons on a one-to-one basis for adults living in the Northern Beaches area of Sydney. We are an independent, community-based, not-for-profit organisation. Our lessons are free.

If you would like to become a student or help a friend become a student, or if you are interested in becoming a volunteer tutor, please contact us by phone or email.

Why do we need literacy?

Communication is our goal.

Literacy Network teaches communication through listening and speaking, reading and writing in English.

People need to share their thoughts with others so that they understand who they are, what is needed, and what is offered. Everywhere we go, we need to communicate with the people we meet, with our employers and colleagues, in job applications and interviews, with our doctors or our children’s schools, to make friends.

Communication means asking and answering questions, sharing information about ourselves, and understanding what others share with us.
