Reading/numeracy materials

We had always concentrated our efforts on reading and spelling but in 2011 extended our efforts into basic numeracy.  In the past students we had taught were normally reasonably competent in numeracy in their home languages and needed no more than some specialised English language to be able to discuss these known skills in their new environment.  However, over the past few years we have found that many new arrivals were seriously floundering with the financial problems they encountered.  So we decided it was time to extend our work in this direction.
