Onslow County natives may think nothing of being able to ask for help finding a particular item at the grocery store or ordering something off of a menu, but when you do not speak English, those tasks become huge challenges.
“ESL (English as a Second Language) classes offered by Coastal Carolina Community College provide many people the ability to increase their language skills and improve their quality of life in the community, workforce, and their relationships with others,” said Elmer Price, Director, Basic Skills Program and Academic Studies Center.
