New Dates for Conversation Circles

Don't miss our new dates for Conversation Circles!

If you've been unable to attend before, we are now having CC at new locations and times. 

Conversation Circles is a great opportunity to practice speaking and listening in a group setting. It's also a wonderful chance to meet other ESL students and learn about other cultures. 

Starting the second week in July, Conversation Circles are happening: 

 

 

Adult Summer Reading Program

That’s right! Now adults (age 18+) have their very own reading challenge this summer too! For reading or listening to any four books between May 27th and August 2nd, adults win a coupon for a free bagel from Panera Bread, and will be entered automatically to win one of 185 awesome prizes!

We want to especially encourage our adult learners to sign up for this great opportunity! Let us know if you complete the Summer Reading Program (be sure to send us your reading log!), and the Literacy Office will send you a $5 gift card for QuikTrip!

June Adult Learner Book Club

As per usual, the Book Club will not met during the month of May. However, there is a book for participants to read for June: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.

“A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.”
