    Question Help pleasee

    [COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 0)]I need to transalte this:

    They offer a range of free and fee-based programs and services out of their newly renovated resource and exhibition centre at 2060 Pine Street.
    [/COLOR]


    I don't understand: if they are free programs and services, how could they be fee-based? And I don't understand the expression 'out of' in this case.
    Thank you!

    Hi Eugenia,
    As I understand it...
    1- They offer both, free and fee-based programs
    2- Out of = at the entrance to their resource and exhibition center (at 2060 Pine St.)

    Regards!

    This wording (out of) is sometimes used when an operation established for one purpose takes on an additional purpose.

    There is already a newly renovated resource and exhibition center, established for some other reason, and this center is now going to offer free and fee-based classes in addition to their original project.

    Anther example of "out of":
    operating a business out of your home (your home is primarily your residence but you are using it for a second purpose, a business)


    I agree with Clarab: they are offering two kinds of classes: free classes and fee-based classes
