Academic Excellence – ESL at Laney College

Laney College’s ESL Department (English as a Second Language) and The Lake Merritt – Independent Senior Living community have teamed up in an incredibly successful partnership.

Every Friday, the Laney College ESL class practices conversational English with residents of The Lake Merritt – Independent Senior Living. This program is a hit with both students from Laney’s ESL class and the residents of The Lake Merritt.

It’s a winning situation for all. Practice makes perfect and that is exactly what the ESL students get to do with residents of The Lake Merritt. Numerous studies have shown that loneliness can lead to problems in mental, physical and emotional health with aging adults. The benefits of feeling helpful and needed often makes a huge difference in anyone’s life, no matter their age and through this one-of-a-kind program, both parties benefit in the most awesome way!
