Class offers opportunity to learn English

by Elizabeth Lively

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- New to our country? There's a new class starting for those who would like to practice speaking English with others.

Southern Illinois University Carbondale is hosting the class, which is an easy way to meet others and become comfortable speaking a new language.

Sessions meet from noon to 12:50 p.m. weekdays in SIUC's Faner Hall, Room 3514, beginning Wednesday Jan. 21. The course will continue through early May.

The first class is an important informational session.

The fee is $50.

Providing continuing education opportunities is among the goals of Southern at 150, the blueprint for the development of the University by the time it celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2019. For more information, call the SIUC Division of Continuing Education, which is organizing the class, at 618/536-7751 or visit http://www.dce.siu.edu.
