San Benito Afterschool Program offers ESL classes for free

SAN BENITO — Learning a new language can be hard.

The San Benito Afterschool Program wants to bridge that communication barrier.

San Benito Afterschool Program and the San Benito Housing Authority are partnering up to offer ESL classes the parents involved in either program.

Classes are free to the community and are held at San Benito Housing La Hermosa building.

This is the third year that the Afterschool program has offered ESL classes and they average 12 to 15 students but are hoping to increase those numbers.

Classes began yesterday and are held Tuesday through Thursday every week.
