Literacy Infographic

Should ministry work put more emphasis on reading or oral methods?  This is a question that various organizations consider, and the infographic below explores both literacy and oral learning.  Designed for GMI’s Missiographics.com, the graphic shows that 84% of adults worldwide are literate, and different countries use different definitions of “literate.”

Oral learning is still the norm, and it is estimated that one-third of the global population cannot read the language that they speak.  And, about 80% of the population communicates primarily through oral methods.
