ESL at OLR – Orientation on September 1st
On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. ESL (English as a Second Language) classes are taught at Our Lady of Refuge. The program is in its 5th year and serves approximately 80 students. The students are adult Spanish and Vietnamese speakers. An experienced lead teacher will teach the class assisted by volunteers. Lessons are guided by “Side by Side” by Pearson – Longman.
The next session will begin the week of September 12th and continue to early December, where we will take a break and start up again in early January and finish the year in May. We are looking for volunteers to help one night a week in these classes. Your responsibility would be working with small groups of students. No experience is necessary, but knowledge of Spanish or Vietnamese is helpful.
For more information, email Valerie Orsley at email@example.com. Valerie is a Holy Spirit parishioner who has been involved with this program for four years and organizes all the volunteers. She will be able to answer any of your questions.
