LACONIA — Laconia Adult Education is offering Beginning and Intermediate free ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) Classes Tuesday and Thursday evenings beginning January 14. These classes meet from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in Rooms #216 and #217 at Laconia High School.
The ESOL classes will enable new learners of the English language to speak, read, and write English. It is most important for foreigners making their home in the Lakes Region to be able to communicate in emergencies and in everyday living situations such as shopping, making doctor appointments, filling out job applications, relating with their child's school and teachers, and everyday expressions of common courtesy.
There is no charge for the ESOL classes. Call the Laconia Adult Education Office at 524-5712 to enroll in the ESOL classes.
