The Adult English classes follow a similar structure and curriculum as the Puente Program, aimed at older students who have completed the Puente program and adults who wish to improve their English language skills for better employment opportunities. The classes are attended by community members, business owners, employees, as well as parents of children in the Puente program. Evening classes are held twice a week, making it possible for working adults to learn English in a town where the primary economy is based on foreign tourism. This program helps more than 50 adults annually.
Registration is done quarterly, and the cost per month is $500 MXN per quarter. If you are visiting or new to the area and would like to volunteer, please contact Director Kate Lewis at. firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The classes with Ruth were great. Many years ago, I tried to learn the English language but never could. After having classes with Ruth, one day she and I were talking only in English for an hour! That was the best. Without realizing it, I spoke and understood perfectly. Now I can communicate without problems. I know I must study much more to make it perfect and I would love to continue talking to Ruth. She is the best teacher and friend.” – Immignna Malibé Cortés Salgado
