Adult Reading Classes

A friend of mine can’t read, and I’d like to help him out, but I’m no English teacher. Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do to help him learn to read? Maybe something online; something cheap or free? I’ve found a series of basic reading videos on Youtube, but he doesn’t have a pc or laptop, all he has is an iPhone, but without being able to read, he doesn’t do much with it. If he had a pc, I could set all those lessons as bookmarks and he could go through them in order.

Any thoughts, ideas or suggestions?

Thank you. Bookmarked them. They look like what’s needed.

Does he have a DVD player ?
If so download the YouTube videos & create a DVD for him.
I have used DVDFlick for doing that .
It can be picky about certain files.
The next time I’m going to try AVStoDVD for this.
Anyway that’s my suggestion.

Just a note my mom taught my brother to read with phonics.
That was 50 years ago & he is a better reader than I am.
He just didn’t get reading with the memorization method the schools used.

I’m not sure if you will be able to access the resources here from the USA, but here is a link anyway.

Gaarry if you post a link to the YouTubes I will give downloading them a go & see what AVStoDVD will do to create a DVD from them.
If it works for me you should be able to do the same .
Then just give the DVD to your friend.

@ Dee: That page shows up perfectly. Thanks, I’ll check it out.

@ cholla: Yeah, I’m sure he has a DVD deck. I could easily do that (use dvdflick a lot). I just found a whole series of reading tutorials on Yoputube, quizes included.

I found out he is dyslexic, which is why he can’t read well. He read some things for me today so I got an idea where he is at. Seems to have trouble about every fifth word or so.
