Free ESL Classes for Unit 4 Parents

Unit 4 is hosting an ESL Academy for parents. It’s a great way for parents who are non-native English speakers to learn the language so that they are better equipped to help their children with schoolwork.

From the release:

Free adult ESL classes for parents of Champaign Unit 4 Schools students will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from June 18 until July 30 from 6:00 until 7:30 p.m. at the Mellon Administrative Center (703 South New Street, Champaign).

The classes allow parents to practice their English and learn how to help their children in school. Childcare is provided.

Hosted by the Champaign Unit 4 ESL/Bilingual Education Department, the classes are taught by volunteers from the Master of Arts in the Teaching of English as a Second Language program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

A program graduation will be held on July 30 that includes a picnic and awards ceremony for participants in the class.

Space is limited. Call Kat Kolumban at (717) 977-1597 to register for the Adult ESL Academy.
