The St. Isidore ESL (English as a second language) ministry is a one-on-one program for adult students who want to learn or improve their English for employment, higher education, citizenship classes or just to live an English-speaking life. It is supported and mentored by the Adult Learning and Literacy Department of the People’s Resource Center.
Classes meet on Wednesdays mornings at 9:00am-10:30am and on Thursday evenings at 7:00pm-8:30pm.
Maureen deWaard said that the ESL program originally started in 2005 with about forty tutors and students. At present, there are one hundred tutors and students.
