Monday, January 21, 2019 is Martin Luther King Jr Day – a national holiday. Observing the holiday, Wake Tech College is closed on Monday and there are no ESL classes.
Martin Luther King Jr was an important figure in the American civil rights movement and worked for equal rights for all. He believed in the power of ordinary people using nonviolent acts of resistance such as boycotts to influence major social change. Most of all, he believed in the right of all people, no matter their background, to live side by side in our society with equal rights and dignity.
His words still have a profound meaning in our current times and continue to inspire us.
Happy New Year! As we start a new year, we think about where we want this year to take us and what important for us to do.
We all have different personal and career goals but we know that being able to use English in our daily lives is absolutely necessary.
Wake Tech is ready to help you with a variety of ESL and career oriented classes designed to support non-native speakers. Classes are beginning in January but there are registrations throughout the month.
On Election Day, November 6th, 2018, Wake County Public schools will be operating on a 2 hour delay. Due to this delay, ESL classes at Hispanic Family Center (HFC) and Garner United Methodist Church (GUMC) have been cancelled for that day.
