'Survival English' class taught at Clinton Community College

CLINTON — Clinton Community College is again offering an evening course for newcomers from other lands to learn what is called “Survival English” — the language skills they need to buy groceries, apply for a job, understand a credit card bill, use an automatic-teller machine or read bus routes.

A recent class had a woman from Vietnam who also speaks Mandarin Chinese, a man from Uzbekistan who also spoke Russian and students from Korea and Mexico.

The class offers a chance to develop whatever English skills the individual needs.
