Refugees from Southeast Asia living in rural Colorado tackle the language barrier
As anyone who's ever taken a foreign language class knows, it's hard to learn another language. For immigrants to this country, that challenge can affect their whole lives. According to census data, in 2013 there were more than 25 million people in the United States with limited English proficiency. And, in Colorado's rural Delta County, a group of refugees from Southeast Asia is trying to overcome this barrier. In the community room at a migrant housing complex in Delta, Colorado four adults are studying the U.S. flag. They are ESL students — English as a second language — and their teacher is preparing them for the citizenship test.
