Ingles Para Ti: Helping Hispanics Learn English

Mexican-born immigrants are the leading migrant group in the United States, and 71% are limited English proficient. Because estimates suggest an increase in the influx of adult English language students in the next decade, and employers will seek to hire these individuals, it is important for language-minority adults to learn English. Inglés Para Ti, an English language school in Dallas Texas, employs a unique English teaching method reflective of students’ real-life situations. Focused primarily on conversation, students gain practical skills useful in their personal and work lives. Inglés Para Ti students have experienced great success from gaining English prociency. Many have been able to acquire their first job or have been promoted in their existing professions. Most students have gained the confidence to venture outside of their communities and join the larger community by eating in restaurants and shopping in stores outside of their Hispanic neighborhoods. Inglés Para Ti students have reported experiencing less discrimination as they gained English proficiency. Many have gained the English proficiency to become American citizens.
