Word Matters: What is it all about?

Presenter Dotun Adebayo has introduced BBC Radio 5 Live's 'Word Matters' project, which aims to start the biggest conversation about adult literacy in a decade.

We hope this conversation will help people to understand the impact learning to read and write can have on a person's life.
