The Intermediate High ESL students from Linda Tacazon’s class at Independence Adult Center are practicing for EL Civics Objective 28: Health. They are engaged in the role play “At the Doctor’s Office”.

To effectively participate in education, work, and civic opportunities in this country, immigrants and other limited English proficiency students must not only master English, but be able to understand and navigate such important institutions, as banking and health care. They should also understand governmental, educational and workplace systems. The EL Civics program helps the immigrants to overcome the culture shock and to integrate into the new society.
