Despite the increased efforts by volunteers in Liga MAC’s ESL (English as a Second Language) program to reach students electronically during the pandemic shutdown, the program has hit another roadblock.

Citing costs and difficulties conducting remote classes, the local public school district has decided to cancel “extracurricular” classes including art, music, and English. How this decision will impact curriculum and students remains to be seen, but Liga MAC volunteers are once again preparing to lead virtual ESL classes for our students.
In a high tourist area like Los Cabos, learning English is a vital economic tool for our Liga MAC Educational Support students. In the future, our planned new “Learning Centre” will afford our students a location to interact with native speakers and participate in ESL classes.
