English Conversation ( Level 1) at Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow

Work with adult immigrants who are in the first stage of their English learning. Four simultaneous projects provide supplemental support for 4 ESOL classes. This group supports a beginner class (Level 1)
The activities will vary. Volunteers might assist with homework; casually discuss current events; explain idioms and fixed expression; etc. The goal is to get students start to be comfortable using spoken English to start simple conversations. We encourage all bilingual volunteers in English and Spanish to sign up. Volunteers do not need to be grammar experts, as long as they speak English fluently.
