Ep. 32 "English Will Change My Future" | Library Stories

As a student in NYPL’s free ESOL classes, Raul Flores is proud to say that he has gone from knowing just a few basic English phrases, to being able to converse comfortably with other English speakers. In a city as expensive as New York, he says, having free English classes is an enormous help to him. In this week’s Library Story, learn more about how the Library’s ESOL classes have opened the door for a whole new world of opportunities for Raul and his family.
