Program Overview

CEUS has organized English As A Second Language classes for Hispanic student since 1994. Four years later, seeing some students try to learn English when they could barely read and write in their own language, CEUS started a Spanish Literacy program. CEUS runs runs three ten-week semesters of English and Spanish literacy classes a year. Each semester includes three levels of English classes, a conversation class, and two levels of Spanish literacy classes. All teachers are volunteers, as are the program coordinators. The average enrollment is about 65 English students per semester and a dozen Spanish literacy students. All classes are scheduled for a Sunday, the day when most community members are able to attend. Classes cost students $60 a semester.
