North Aurora resident Lisa Edwards-Shields, asks the North Aurora Village Board Monday for assistance with finding a free Spanish language class for those who speak English. She moved to North Aurora from Mississippi in 2016 for a job at the former Armour-Dial plant in Montgomery and became unemployed when the plant was sold and the new owners moved the facility to Ohio. She stated difficulty in finding employment with bilingual candidates preferred. She sees free classes for Spanish-speaking individuals to learn English, but can not afford paid classes. Suggestions included the Spanish Language Center Naperville.
