English as a Second Language

English as a Second Language students at Downey Adult School have an opportunity to practice speaking English every Thursday morning with native English speakers. Joyce Sherwin and four other volunteers come to the adult school each week to converse with ESL students in small conversation groups for a 1 1/2 hours about topics such as gestures, food, fears or children. It gives students an opportunity to practice the English they are learning in Julie Kalousek's Advanced ESL classrooms. Students are from many countries including Vietnam, Cambodia, Mexico, El Salvador and Colombia. If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering, call Julie Kalousek at (562) 940-6208. ********** Published: March 01, 2012 - Volume 10 - Issue 46
