East Boston Main Streets to meet on English language needs

East Boston Main Streets officials will be holding two initial meetings to assess the English language needs of East Boston business owners on Monday, July  27 and Tuesday, July 28 at 127 Maverick St., second floor. The goal is to be able to present the business community with a very innovative program of English language instruction based on a business-specific curriculum to be piloted starting September.

 In order to be able to provide the most relevant classes, there is the  need to ensure that there is a very specific understanding of the language needs and availability of potential class participants. It is essential that interested business owners and their staff meet  on either the 27 or 28 for an initial assessment.
