Laredo College adds a Saturday class to their ESOL program

LAREDO,Texas(KGNS)- A Laredo College program aimed at assisting individuals with the English language is making an addition to its course.

The English for speakers of other languages program also referred to as ESOL, will be adding an additional class next semester.

They'll be adding for the first time a Saturday class, aimed at individuals who work during the week.

Enrollment in the program has been difficult as of late since there are many free ESOL programs in the community.

Although the Laredo College program isn't free, they do offer financial assistance.

Program instructors say they have a proven track record of preparing students to go into academic or certification programs.

One student says she's taking the course in order to strengthen her communication skills.

If you're interested in enrolling into the ESOL program, the instructor encourages you to contact the English and Communication Department at 721-5445.
