Ibero to launch ESL program

ROCHESTER — Ibero-American Action League will launch a new English as a second language program this fall.

The education program will include a one-hour class to be offered daily, according to information from the agency. During the sessions, students will practice written and verbal skills and prepare presentations. They also will participate in such scenarios as making requests for information, applying for jobs and mock job interviews.

The classes, which will be free and open to the public with no age restrictions or previous education required, will be funded through a $34,000 state grant secured by state Sen. Rich Funke. Funke and Hilda Rosario-Escher, Ibero’s president and chief executive officer, announced the program during an Aug. 21 press conference.

For more information or to register for the classes, call 585-256-8900 or visit http://iaal.org.
