Kayhan Irani nominated for NY Emmy Award for Best Writing

The Mayor’s Office of Adult Education and the City University of New York were nominated for 4 NY Emmy Awards for “We Are New York”. The popular new TV show was nominated  for: Best Writing; Best Photography; Best Crime Programming; and Best Music.
 
We Are New York  can make a difference in people’s lives.  Each episode has a different story of immigrants living in New York City  demonstrating how people work together to solve problems and create better lives for themselves.  The television series is intended to help people learn English that will be useful to them.   The characters speak the English of everyday life.  But, they speak a little slower than the average English-language television show.  The program is subtitled in  English, helping people to understand and learn the language.
