SALT LAKE CITY -- Twenty-two adult immigrants graduated from a rigorous English as a Second Language (ESL) program Tuesday night.

The students took part in the "Su Banco" program on full scholarships funded by Zions Bank and the University of Utah. They have studied for two hours, four nights a week, since January.

Most ESL programs offer "survival English," but this one provides advanced English training for Spanish-speaking Latinos who've already graduated from one of the basic skills classes.
