English literacy: A family affair
Submitted By Rochelle Oral
Literacy is a family affair. Are you able to read to your children in English and help them with their homework? If not, perhaps you need to improve your own English and reading skills. Fremont Adult and Continuing Education's CBET (Community Based English Tutoring) Program has ESL classes where parents and other adult family members can learn English while learning how to become more involved in their children's education. Your children will do better in school if you read to them and get involved with their schoolwork.
We have nine locations throughout Fremont to serve parents of ESL students in Fremont. Free babysitting is provided by Fremont Adult and Continuing Education at certain sites. Children must be 18 months to 11 years old. Proof of immunizations is required.
Our CBET/ESL classes are held at American High School, Ardenwood Elementary School, Blacow Elementary School, Brier Elementary School, Durham Elementary School, Grimmer Elementary School, Irvington High School, and Vallejo Mill Elementary School. We also have a class at the United SIKHS Center in Fremont.
Please visit our website at http://www.fremont.k12.ca.us/Page/15800 for more information, or call (510) 793-2240 and ask for Susan Anderson, ESL Department Secretary. We look forward to seeing you in one of our CBET/ESL classes!
