Citizenship through English at Long Island City Adult Learning Center

 

Citizenship through English at Long Island City Adult Learning Center

Becoming a US citizen is one of the most challenging, but rewarding processes that New Americans face. Be a part of a new citizens' story by helping them prepare for the test. Converse with adult immigrants in small groups. Help them improve their understanding of spoken and written English. Talk about the history of the United States, the function of our government, our geography, and similar topics. Practice reading and writing from a civics vocabulary list.

No bilingual ability necessary, but Bengali or Spanish would help. This is a commitment for the following Saturdays:
November 5, 12, 19
December 3, 10, 17

Committed Project Date Range:
