Simplifying the way we communicate with one another can benefit everybody. Adopting a plain language approach can be particularly crucial for low-literate adults, and those learning English.
Literacy Advance staff have researched and learned about Plain Language over recent years. We believe that this is important across many fields, not just to those of us who work in the literacy world. If you're interested in reaching more people with your important message, then plain language is something to pay attention to!
