FREE ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE PROGRAM (ESL)
Funding Sources: WIA Title II Grant (Workforce Investment Act)
Join the Covina Public Library’s Free English as a Second Language Program. The program helps learners achieve proficiency in English and related skills needed for daily life and employment situations. All students are tutored in one-on-one settings and get individualized reading instruction twice per week. The program starts at the beginning level for those who neither read nor write English and progress to the final level before learners can be mainstreamed into all English instruction.
