Due to the pandemic, ESLIM's programs offered online classes this fall. The format changed, but the commitment to improve English skills and welcome immigrants and other non-native English speakers remained strong. Now more than ever, English skills are critical.
One unexpected benefit of online classes is that former students who returned to their home countries can participate, along with faraway friends of local students. One teacher wrote:
"My first Zoom classes have me walking on the ceiling. No technical glitches, wildly enthusiastic students, and participants Zooming in from Lima (Peru), Sofia (Bulgaria), and Antananarivo (Madagascar). It's one of the coolest things I've ever been involved with. Covid-19 quarantine reports from around the world!"
Thank you to ESLIM's students, volunteers, member churches, and donors. Together you make a difference in our community and beyond!
