Grassroots ESL

According to the U.S. Census, nearly 1-quarter of Azusa’s 46,361 residents report they speak English “less than very well.” In response, the Azusa community has joined together to provide Grassroots ESL (English as a 2nd Language) to help limited English speakers gain confidence and skill in speaking English.
