USA Learns is a free website that helps adults learn English online for free. This popular website, visited by more than 7,000,000 adults around the world, teaches English by providing engaging videos and educational activities. Learners have the opportunity to learn English independently or with the support of their teacher.

The website was built by the Sacramento County Office of Education, which is located in California, United States. Initial funding for USA Learns, which ended in 2008, was originally provided by the U.S. Department of Education and the California Department of Education. The Sacramento County Office of Education now has full ownership rights for the USA Learns website and receives no outside funding to maintain the site. We invite you to learn more about the project and get easy-to-share graphics, videos and text on our new Share! page.
