Afghan Evacuees Learn English at Fort McCoy


(WLAX/WEUX) – Afghan evacuees at Fort McCoy are learning English to help them assimilate into life in the US.

The Enforcer Kids Academy and Enforcer adult classes are hosted Monday through Friday and include writing, public speaking, and pronunciation guidance.

An Afghan evacuee who leads many of the lessons says lots of students already have advanced degrees from Afghanistan, and just need help with their English so they can finish their studies in America

While the schools’ main purpose is to teach Afghan evacuees English, it also allows the students to experience American classrooms before they leave Fort McCoy.
