Laubach Literacy of Ventura County is offering a free workshop to help volunteers learn to become English as Second Language (ESL) tutors of adults.
The next workshop will be held Saturday, October 13 (from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM); lunch will be provided. The workshop will be held at Barrister Executive Suites in Ventura; directions will be given upon registration.
Various methods and materials for teaching English to adults will be demonstrated and taught during the workshop, enabling the new tutor to begin ESL tutoring right away. Neither teaching experience nor the ability to speak a foreign language is necessary. Open a world to an adult non-fluent English speaker with the gift of learning how to skillfully read, write, and speak English.
To register, get more information and directions, please call (805) 385-9584, and please take some time to check out our website at www.laubachventura.org.
Laubach Literacy was founded in 1955 by Frank Laubach, who was a missionary in the Philippines in the 1930’s. By training volunteers and developing teaching materials Dr Laubach empowered many people around the world to improve their lives through literacy. Today we are proud to carry on his legacy.
We are an all-volunteer 501(c) 3 corporation serving Ventura County for over 40 years. We are dedicated to teaching adults 18 years and older to speak, understand, read, and write English and to familiarize them with American culture.
