Displaced Puerto Ricans to receive English training at STCC

Hampden County

Recent western Massachusetts arrivals from hurricane-battered Puerto Rico are improving their English at Springfield Technical Community College.

STCC will be starting a free, 30-hour training program later this month called English Language in the Workplace.

Potential students signed up for the program Wednesday. MGM Springfield and the New England Farm Workers Council partnered with STCC to offer this free course.

Some 100 men and women will begin the two courses on May 15.
