Since the ESL program's inception a year ago, the Lebanon Campus has opened doors for a large number of people who now have structured access to higher education available to them. "It's truly a chance to give students confidence and training in their English skills, so they can move into a job or continue their study at HACC," says Barbara Grandia, counselor for the Lebanon Campus. "There also are financial aid opportunities remaining yet-it's never too late to investigate financial possibilities."
Students can take up to four levels of classes. Level I begins August 22 and continues to October 13, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5-6:30pm, and Saturday mornings 9:15am-noon. Level II is October 17 through December 8, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5-6:30pm and Saturday mornings 9:15am-noon. Levels III and IV are scheduled for the spring 2001 semester. On-site child care is available during all of these sessions.For more information regarding the HACC-Lebanon ESL program, admissions applications, ESL testing, or financial aid, in Spanish or English, contact Doris Vargas (Spanish spoken) at (717)270-6330, or Barbara Grandia, counselor/class placement, at (717)270-6317.
