UT Offers Free English Course to Facilities Workers

A group of Facilities Services workers are getting an opportunity to sharpen their English skills thanks to a free program offered by the English Language Institute. The class, which began in January, meets Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. Four faculty from ELI volunteered to teach the class on a rotating basis, and about nine facilities staffers, all of whom speak English as a second language, have stuck with the course. The final class of the semester is Friday, April 25.
