ESOL’s Mission Statement
The Washington and Lee University English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program strives to facilitate communication among the rural, and increasingly diverse language communities of Rockbridge County. We aim to foster multilingualism and greater social equity in our area through language learning and literacy initiatives. While we reject the imposition of English, we believe that English-language competency is important for accessing vital health, human, and education services. We support and collaborate with speakers of many languages, including, but not limited to, English and Spanish. Our student volunteers also participate in language and literacy work beyond the Lexington-Rockbridge region, thus returning to our area with greater cultural competency and a broader horizon of experiences.
