Daytime Classes

Last but not least, let’s meet our daytime folks! They come to class 4 mornings a week. Some of them have to drop off their schoolchildren early in the morning on the way and pick them up after class, and some other students have to go to work right after their class or a few of them come to class before hitting the sack in the morning after their night shift. No matter how different their lives are, their goal is the same, to improve their English skills and their lives!
