The Greer Learning Center of GLA is looking for volunteers to help the international members of the Greer area learn English as a Second Language.
In the program, adult English students are divided into different level classes, and tutors teach level-appropriate materials.
Tutors help English language learners with new vocabulary, phrases, and conversation skills.
After observing classes and participating in a volunteer orientation/training workshop, tutors work with students for 1 1/2 - 2 hours a week. Volunteers do not need prior teaching experience or foreign language skills to help someone learn to speak English.
The center offers daytime and evening classes.
