This week on Local Motion, we explore learning English as a second language. First, we'll hear from University of Colorado, Boulder linguist Maria Thomas-Ruzic. She's worked in the ESL field for over 40 years. Thomas-Ruzic explains why English is a basic need for immigrants in the United States and the challenges adult learners face.

We'll also hear from Gail Srebnik, the manager of the Delta County Libraries’ adult literacy program. She talks about the ESL and GED prep class the library district offers through it.
