High Demand for ESL Classes

Now through August 18, El Centro de la Raza is providing online level 1/2 ESL classes for registered students living in Washington State. Participants learn skills related to introductions and greetings; making small talk about weather, sports, and habits; telling time; talking about money, numbers, and dates; describing activities and emotions, and asking and answering simple questions. The instructor also tailors each lesson by incorporating students’ goals into the curriculum.

Nearly 100 people have emailed us regarding their interest in attending ESL classes for Spanish speakers, including out-of-state people living in Texas and Arizona.

At this time, 14 students are enrolled in ESL classes where four Spanish-speaking volunteers assist them with practicing, translating, and explaining the material. Students are learning remotely from the greater Seattle area, Anacortes, Buckley, and Yakima. Classes are held online every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 5 PM to 7:20 PM. Enrollment is for current students and on a rolling basis. To learn more information or to register, please contact Camila via email at facilities@elcentrodelaraza.org or by phone at 206-329-9442.
