ESL Crash Course
June 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
We’re excited to announce our first “ESL Crash Course” with Jay Ingram to equip Refuge Volunteers to better help refugees and immigrants improve their English.
This two-hour training will be a prerequisite for all volunteers participating in our brand new English Mentorship program. The inability to communicate in English presents a great hardship for refugees. We want to empower every refugee with the language skills they desire. Refugees will be encouraged to push their limits in a new language while simultaneously building relationships with Christian mentors who love them and seek to share the gospel with them.
Jay holds a MA in Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language/ESL Language Instructor and has taught at Boyce College and the University of Illinois at Springfield.
