Susan Whinery: Integrated Community should be applauded

— To the editor:

As an Integrated Community volunteer, I'd like to make a quick clarification regarding Mr. Reina's letter to the editor in Wednesday's Craig Daily Press.

A course entitled English as a Second Language refers to the order in which an individual learns the language rather than to a value judgment of which language is superior or preferred.

Immigrants to this country, quite naturally, have learned another language before English.

Their enrollment in the ESL class indicates a desire to learn and communicate in English, and Integrated Community should be applauded for providing this valuable learning opportunity.
