Library E.S.L. classes teach computer skills
The Literacy Services department at Fort Bend County Libraries will have introductory ESL (English-as-a-Second-Language) computer classes in April for adults who would like to learn how to speak English and improve their computer skills. Each class is designed to improve English-speaking, reading and writing abilities while teaching basic computer skills. The classes will take place from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon, in the Computer Lab at George Memorial Library, 1001 Golfview in Richmond.
The schedule is as follows:
• April 11 – Introduction to Microsoft Word for English-Language Learners, Part 1.
Students will learn family-related English words and phrases, while receiving an introduction to this word-processing computer program. By the end of the class, they will write a story in English about their family, and learn how to use a flash drive to save their work.
• April 25 – Introduction to Microsoft Word for English-Language Learners, Part 2.
This class will focus on job-related words, and on improving skills with the Microsoft Word computer program. Students will write a story in English about their jobs, and will learn how to perform an image search on the internet.
The classes are free and open to the public. Seating is limited, however, and reservations are required.

Participants may also register by calling the library’s Literacy Services Department at 281-341-2652, or by visiting the department at the library.
