Free English classes aim to engage community in civic opportunities, provide access to services

Civil rights organization Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAAJ) will launch English language classes in San Gabriel and Los Angeles tomorrow. This comes in part due to a lack of resources for the Asian American populations in the San Gabriel Valley, AAAJ said in a press release.

The curriculum for the classes also includes a financial literacy component.“The ability to communicate in English leads to greater independence and access to services,” said Gaelin Monkman-Kotz, ESL course instructor at Asian Americans Advancing Justice in a press release.

The classes will be taught in English and are open to any lawful permanent resident. Courses are free and last 12 weeks. There will be one class at the San Gabriel library and another at in the Pio Pico Library in Koreatown. Each class will accept no more than 30 students; any more will be waitlisted for the next cycle which will begin in September.

For more information and to register for the ESL/civics classes, individuals should contact the organization’s hotline at:
