QCH expands ESOL program
Forest Hills-based nonprofit Queens Community House has expanded the reach of its English for Speakers of Other Languages program by adding free classes through the its Beacon Program at P.S. 149 in Jackson Heights. The course is designed to meet the needs of students at all levels, and former students have reported feeling more confident at work, in their children’s schools and in doctor’s offices. “We teach English that our participants can use as soon as they leave the classroom,” said Bino Realuyo, QCH’s Director of Adult Education.
