Programs designed for non-speaking English residents
Nov. 3, 2008
GETTYSBURG, PA - The HACC Language Institute will offer basic classes in English for non-English speaking residents in the Hanover-Adams area at the Gettysburg Campus beginning in early 2009.
The continuing education classes are designed for adults who may lack work-related English Language skills, who are looking to improve their English-language understanding and pronunciation, who have not had success in formal English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, or who need more training before attending ESL classes for credit.
“We see these not just as language classes, but as opportunities to break down barriers,” said Steve Berwager, Language Institute coordinator at the Gettysburg Campus.
“These courses will give students more confidence in English, allow them to have success in the classroom, and then use that success to participate more fully in our society. We’re very excited to serve this segment of our community.”
The first class, Basic Everyday English, is an introduction into English communications, emphasizing speaking and listening. It will meet from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Jan. 27-March 17. The cost is $35.
HACC Language Institute also is available to Hanover-Adams employers to present English language classes and basic workplace Spanish to employees.
To register or for more information, contact Berwager at 337-3855, ext 3220.
