THE BRONX - A free program in the South Bronx is helping more people learn English. 

The New Season Christian Center on Southern Boulevard is offering ESL classes at no charge with help from the church's grassroots THRIVE program. 

The center has been helping the neighborhood for nearly 10 years with a number of initiatives, but Senior Pastor Philip Bonano says that the newest offering could be the one thing people in the neighborhood need to get ahead. 

Registration is still open and almost 50 people have signed up in the three weeks since the program kicked off. 

Classes meet every Monday at 7 p.m. until the end of August. The church plans to offer the course again this fall and also hopes to add a citizenship class.
