Event Description:

Learn how to teach English as a second language to immigrants, refugees, and non-native speakers. This workshop will train volunteer tutors to address a growing need in central Indiana, where an estimated 80,000 people are non-native speakers. Acquiring minimal English skills can significantly improve the social and economic health of these individuals. Workshop participants will learn how to provide this important gift and will receive a sound educational and cultural approach to tutoring along with take-home materials. This event is open to all interested volunteers and nonprofit administrators. Admission is free; refreshments are provided. Classroom resources are available. Presented by the Indiana Center for Intercultural Communication, IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI; and Catholic Charities of Indianapolis.
