Intensive English Sessions - July in San José
It's summer up North, a great time for camp, hobbies, and another fun things that aren't possible during the grind of the school year. Luckily for us, some intrepid student volunteers from Northeastern University (Boston) are going to spend part of the summer leading an English camp of their own - intensive conversation sessions - in downtown San José! We hope both new and experienced volunteers will drop by turn this month of sessions into an opportunity for Community Conversations' more permanent groups to make some progress as well. The Northeastern volunteers will be noting successful activities and ideas for addition to our Volunteer Handbook, and gathering information to help us launch new groups. So, experienced volunteers: will you drop by to share a favorite activity or suggestion with the participants, for inclusion in our Handbook? New volunteers: will you visit us so you can see how a conversation session works, and communicate with us about a schedule and location that would work for you for a weekly group? We hope to see you there! The sessions will take place at the IPEA English Center, across from Cine Variedades, from 9 to 11 am on the following dates: July 7 -8, 11-14, 18-22, 26-27. Please write to me (Katherine) at email@example.com if you would like to join us! Above: a photo from CRML-Northeastern's successful "English camp" in Desamparados in 2010.
