English Language Center helping diversity of nationalities

Not only does Craig Hale volunteer approximately 20 hours a week at the English Language Center, he also spends time away from the center with the students teaching them gardening or taking them to cultural activities.Hale also organized and taught free English as a Second Language classes in Washington, D.C. before he retired. Hale worked with the CIA in Washington, D.C for 31 years.On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Wednesday, Hale said he has found Cache Valley to be even more diverse than Washington was.”I would say about half of our students are Spanish speakers,” Hale explained. “The other half would speak one of several Asian languages or European languages or African languages typically. “We deal with a diversity of nationalities at the center from every part of the world.”As far as immigration issues go, Hale feels the focus of our efforts should be on having a civil dialogue with each other and we should be careful to take into account individual circumstances.
