Voices of the Valley

Students in the English Language Learner program at CVTC come from all over the world.

Some made the journey for economic purposes, others came to be with family, while still more travelled here to find refuge and a new start after war or political conflict made it unsafe to remain where they were. Now, they all work together to learn the language that will help them connect to their new home through classes in River Falls, Menomonie, Eau Claire, and online.
