Latino Community in Champaign

As part of its mission to community involvement and outreach, the Vallejo Center for Learning Spanish has developed programs to facilitate professional and social flourishing of the Spanish-speaking members of the Champaign-Urbana community. VCLS instructors volunteer to provide English language classes free of charge to the Latino community in Champaign-Urbana. The Vallejo Center for Learning Spanish takes pride in its commitment to serve the Hispanic CU and help build bridges with the English-speaking circles: employers, customers, teachers, civil servants, and bilingual children. The English program unfolds over the course of a full year, developing in distinct stages of Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced levels. The classes feature special guests, linking the students to real-life contexts of English language use in the Champaign-Urbana communities.
