If you want to practice conversation only, please try Conversation Cafe, a program held by Literacy Volunteers of Western Cook County, which meets Saturday mornings from 9:30-11 am at 125 N.

GED Study Group

January 19th, 2013, 9:00am to 10:30am
After taking pre-tests to determine which subjects need improvement, students study for the GED test using a personalized learning plan. Some topics are studied as a group, while others topics may be studied one-to-one with a tutor, or studied independently using suggested materials. Students may use a library card to check out study books. When students are ready, they can take a mock-GED full-length test to simulate the complete experience, which will let them know if they are truly ready to pass the test.
