Instructor Needed to Lead Conversation Class

Save to Favorites

Iowa International Center

  • 5 people are interested

Iowa International Center (IIC) is seeking enthusiastic, dedicated volunteer instructors to lead our Accessible ELL (English Language Learning) Program's Conversation Hour class.

The twice-monthly conversation group aims meets in the morning to foster adult English language learners’ (ELLs’) speaking and listening skills in a relaxed, supportive environment. Speaking fluidly is often a key goal for ELLs, and building confidence is a large part of achieving this goal!

The conversation group is free of charge and open to any and all adult English language learners, regardless of level of English proficiency.
