My boyfriend is 20. He's not dumb. He's a fully functioning member of society who works and pays taxes and everything. But he can't read very well and he can't write. He can read text messages if they're short, but he just gets intimidated by lots of writing and gives up. He can read short words, too. And since I have met him, I've noticed that his text messages have gotten much more readable as he's obviously paying attention to the messages I send him and he's learning. I can tell however, that he's very insecure about this. He thinks he's stupid. But, at the age of 8 his family and himself moved back to their ow country for 5 years, then he came back to this country and started screwing around in school.
How do I teach an adult to read? Without starting from the basics and making him feel like a little kid with labled words and stuff?
