Helping Elderly Immigrants to Learn Oral English
A weekly program has been launched to teach oral English at the Joyful Adult Day Health Center in Rowland Heights, California. This class provides American style oral communications, including greetings, identifying objects, introducing people, time, dates, weather, emergency help, etc. More advanced topics will be included for attendees with higher English proficiency. To meet high demand and maintain learning effectiveness, multiple small classes are being conducted.
February 2017 Update
A second class was conducted to include additional conversational topics, such as children and grand children, daily activities, shopping, and ordering fast foods. A few participants are already in their 90s, yet showed a lot of enthusiasm in attending this weekly class which is very heart warming for us as volunteer teachers.
