Language in Action program helps English learners move forward
from Los Angeles Times
When Aidee Oliva first started attending San Fernando Senior High School two years ago, she often found herself at a loss. "It was hard," said the 11th-grader, a native of Guadalajara, Mexico. "You cannot ask anything to anybody because you don't know the language." But since joining Language in Action, an after-school program run through the EduCare foundation in partnership with Beyond the Bell, the 17-year-old has learned to expand her vocabulary to help others better understand her. For Aidee, knowing English is important because it removes the barrier between her and her classmates.
