Let's Speak English @ Richland Library Main.
Are you an International who wishes to practice speaking English? If so, please consider attending our Let’s Speak English sessions where you can practice speaking English in a relaxed environment.
A typical conversation session starts by going over a particular American idiom that many non-native speakers might find very confusing, such as “Cat got your tongue?” We then spend some time discussing a specific topic followed by attendees partnering up with volunteers to practice their conversational English.
American slang and idioms can make learning English somewhat baffling. The goal of Let’s Speak English is to provide those new to the English language an opportunity to learn what some of these weird sayings mean, to learn about American holidays and culture, and to create a comfortable social environment in which to practice their conversation skills.
We will be meeting in the Bostick Auditorium on the Garden Level of Richland Library Main every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. during the month of September and October. To register please call 929-3469. The Fall 2013 sessions will be starting in September and running through October.
For those interested in volunteering as a Let’s Speak English Conversation Partner please fill out a volunteer application online or contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Cathy Dolan at 929-3436 or at email@example.com.
