For many years, CoFiA has offered ESL classes at the Palisades Park Public Library. This year we had Intermediate and Beginners classes. In addition to providing opportunities to practice English reading, speaking and writing, the sessions–which are offered once a week, without fees–offer a chance for students to become better integrated into American society, get to know each other and teachers in a non-judgmental environment, and share information about what is happening in immigration enforcement. Our holiday party was a highlight for students and teachers alike! And so much food–everyone brought something and everyone helped clean up. Thanks to the always friendly and supportive staff of the Palisades Park Library–they always make us feel welcome and appreciated.
