About

The ESL Practice Program needs volunteers to assist our adult English language students with small group conversation practice or one-on-one writing tutoring.

Afternoon Conversation Groups (closed for the summer, resume October 2nd):
  • When: Tuesdays and Thursdays
  • Time: 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Afternoon Writing Partners (closed for the summer, resume October 10th):
  • When: Mondays and Wednesdays
  • Time: 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Evening Conversation Groups, July 18th - August 23rd:
  • When: Wednesdays and Thursdays
  • Time: 5:45pm to 6:45pm
Evening Writing Partners, July 18th - August 23rd:
  • When: Wednesdays and Thursdays
  • Time: 5:45pm to 6:45pm
The aim of Conversation Groups is to further our students' speaking and listening skills. Many of our students live with family or friends and don't get to practice these skills outside of class. Writing Partners, on the other hand, help individual students with homework from their writing and grammar classes as well as help students improve their overall writing skills.

Volunteers are asked to commit only one hour per week, though we are happy to have you more often if you like. Our students are very motivated and fun to work with, and they are very appreciative of any help you can give.

For more information, please email mculhane@lagcc.cuny.edu for afternoon sessions, and marpena@lagcc.cuny.edu for evening sessions.
