English for Beginners Volunteer Training
September 14, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Interested in supporting adult learners new to the English language? The Fall 2019 cycle begins in September! Come to an Information Session (this one OR the one on Thursday, September 12, at 6 p.m.)
Both sessions are held in the Henry Guest House (next to the library) and both last one hour.
The English for Beginners class supports adults new to English in building communication skills in contexts that are meaningful and relevant to their everyday lives. Class activities are interactive and focus on skills and strategies related to vocabulary, listening, speaking and pronunciation, reading, writing, and grammar. The volunteer training program includes:
a 1-hour information session;
a 3-hour training session in preparation for classes;
and attendance at 7 or more English for Beginners classes (approx. 2.5 hours each).
