The letters of the Roman alphabet (used for English) can seem quite similar to one another and therefore confusing to some beginning readers.

Typical areas of confusion include:

  • straight-line letters: i, l, t, v, w, x, y, z
  • circle letters and those with curves: o, c, m, n, g and others
  • letters that face either left or right: a, g, j, c, k, p, r and others, and
  • letters that extend below the line: g, j, p, q; or above the middle of the line: l, t, f and others.

The conventions of letter formation are that letters curve anti-clockwise, that strokes move from top to bottom and from left to right, and that most letters can be made without lifting the pen from the page (exceptions include the letters f, i, j, k, t and x, depending on a person’s writing style). The writer can continue with another letter, or lift the pen between letters.

These conventions will be new and different for some adults who are familiar with a language that has a non-alphabetic script, where the order of strokes may be important but there may be many strokes to make one character. For ESOL adults who have never, or rarely, encountered the written form of a language (such as adults from Somalia, with a mainly oral language), it will be entirely new learning.

Running Shoe Fit Tips
Foot size: Shoe lasts (which determine shoe sizes) vary by manufacturer and even from one shoe model to another. http://www.lightupshoe.sale. You may need a half-size or even a full size smaller or larger than you think. If you're unsure, have your feet measured. http://www.nikeyeah.com. Try on shoes at the end of the day. Your feet normally swell a bit during the day's activities and will be at their largest then. This helps you avoid buying www.mkpee.com shoes that are too small. http://www.nikeshoesales.com. Aim for a thumbnail's length of extra space in the toebox. The width should be snug but allow a bit of room for your foot to move without rubbing. Laces should be snug but not tight. Barefoot shoes are an exception: Heel and toes should “fit like a glove”without any extra http://www.shoesmaxs.com space in the toes.
