Help us shore up our current ESL curriculum and develop a plan for summer. We serve approximately 20-25 adults, all are recently resettled Syrian refugees. We started our first pilot program last fall (2017) with basic ESL materials and lessons. We need to do some program improvement, and infuse the curriculum with games and hands-on activities with visuals. Our volunteer English coaches need ideas and tools. If you have ESL experience you know that you do not need to be an Arabic-speaker to help us.
Some of our volunteer coaches speak Arabic and other languages, many do not. Some volunteer coaches are teachers, many are not. Most of our learners are Beginners or Beginner/Intermediate learners with about a year in the US. A few of our learners are professionals with prior education in their home country. We need to know how to use flash cards and visuals effectively. We need tips from an adult learning instructor or someone with a little TESOL training. Our program staff have only basic exposure to ESL techniques and models of instruction. Can you help us?!?!
