Macomb County has been designated as a “welcoming community” by the nonprofit Welcoming America.
This means that the community is filled with, and embraces, people of different colors, ethnicities and backgrounds — it means that it provides resources to help immigrants and refugees better assimilate to their new home.
Among those resources are the many English as a Second Language programs.
Here, you will find a list of eight Macomb County programs that teach English to residents who primarily speak another language but want to improve their skills.
Share it with those who wish to learn more — and remember, no matter where you come from, or what language you speak, you’re welcome in Macomb County.
