THE STORY:

Foundation for MetroWest Inc. wrote -

Framingham Adult ESL Plus has been helping people improve their English Language skills since 1984. Originally started by a concerned group of town meeting members, the program has grown over the years from one class to 35 classes but an overwhelming unmet need still exists. The program serves 700 students each semester but turns away over 400 potential students each semester because of lack of funds. Students registered during the past semester came from 40 countries and spoke 26 different languages. Students range in age from 18 to 85 and represent a range of backgrounds. Our students have included former teachers, painters, physicists, pediatricians, musicians and athletes. They are our newest neighbors and bring a wealth of experiences to share with their new community.

A community is only as successful as the communication between its residents therefore it is critical that a community as diverse as Framingham continue to develop effective communication across cultures. Framingham Adult ESL Plus is proud to play a key role in improving communication in our community.
