Video: Groups Organize Free ESL Classes In Brighton

We just found this interesting little video produced by Brooklyn Independent Television (which most of you may refer to as BCAT), exploring a language club put together by a coalition of Brighton Beach-based groups to help the community’s diverse ethnic groups integrate.

From the video’s description:

Over the years Brighton Beach has become very diverse with a mix of Russian, Chinese, Pakistani, and Hispanic residents. English as a second language has been a challenge for many, so Community Board 13, along with other organizations like the Brighton Neighborhood Association, created Conversation Classroom giving English speaking practice sessions to anyone willing to participate.

Definitely an awesome effort by local groups to bring people together and uplift their community. Kudos to them, and kudos to BIT for producing the video!
