What students say about CAC’s classes

At CAC teachers strive every day to give the best classes and so that students learn the English language in easy and fast ways, each teacher gives of their valuable time so that learning and teaching are of quality, better than schools. of English where you have to pay a fee and that if the students do not learn it is because they did not put interest and desire into the classes, but in CAC it is different, the teachers have a variety of aids and they share them with the students making a pleasant atmosphere in each class. It also depends greatly on how we as students interact outside of class with North Americans, that helps to learn and improve our learning of the language, if you speak Spanish with those who speak Spanish it will make it difficult for you to learn English. But if you make an effort to speak English by greeting people who are not Hispanic or Latino, logically you will learn English and speak it faster and without embarrassment.

Thanks for all the things that you do for the hispanic and latino community, we are not alone.

    About the CAC Adult Education program

    The Adult Education program is integral to CAC’s efforts to promote self-sufficiency. Our education classes help neighbors in need improve their situations with daily life skills such as English, or new job skills to get better-paying jobs for a better future. Clients who receive financial assistance are encouraged to take the personal financial management course and given information on all the free classes available.

    The Adult Education program, like everything else at CAC, is volunteer and donor driven. Volunteers teach the courses; many of the computers used in the classes are donated by local businesses. Many of our volunteers are busy professionals who give their time in the evenings to help others get ahead in life. Some of our volunteers are former students who gained employment as a result of taking classes at CAC and came back to teach others in need.

    For more information on volunteering to teach or supporting Adult Education, please contact volunteer@ourcac.org.
