About the Program

MATT Maestro en Casa is a practical and simple English-language learning and life skills program over the radio. Basic English lessons will be broadcasted over the radio to help adult learners navigate common American situations and systems, thus allowing English-language learners to function at a higher level in their daily activities. Parents will learn English from the privacy and comfort of their own homes for a period of 35 weeks, instead of having to attend a class at a specific location. These radio lessons are designed to be supplemented and enhanced with a 6 culturally effective comic book-style workbooks, each covering a different subject.

There are a total of six different workbooks that the participant will use to follow along with the radio classes:

  1. Introduction
  2. Healthcare
  3. Finances
  4. In the Workplace
  5. Education
  6. Citizenship

Participant will receive all 6 booklets when they register for the program.
