Improving Your Child’s Future
As parents you want the best for your children. You spend thousands of hours caring for them, guiding them,
and helping them grow and develop. You want them to get a good education and learn skills that will help them
succeed in life. Unfortunately, far too often it’s not happening the way you want or expect.
Over the last 30 years attention to properly spoken and written English has eroded in our society. Television,
music, movies, and the Internet bombard students daily with incorrect grammar and language. As a result, over
70% of students are graduating from high school unable to speak and write proper English. Colleges want
students and businesses demand employees who can speak and write well, and if your children lack these
skills, it will hamper their education and limit their job opportunities.
The Solution and the Results
Speak For Success is a unique online course that teaches these basic skills so students
remember them for life. It has proven highly effective in a dozen schools where it has been
implemented. The blue bars below show the percentage of students able to get a passing grade
on basic speaking and writing skills prior to taking the course.
The red bars show the improvement achieved in 60 days with a 2 minute daily lesson and a 10
minute weekly quiz.
