Tell Me about It: Conversation Circles and Partners

Date: Tuesday, September 24, 2019

Time: 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Location: Minnesota Literacy Council main office, 700 Raymond Avenue, Suite 180, Saint Paul, MN 55114

Cost: There is no fee for this training, but your tax-deductible donation will support our tutor training program and literacy learners across Minnesota!

Description: Ask many ESL learners what they’d like to work on and the majority of them will say, “conversation”. To respond to this need, more and more programs are offering opportunities such as conversation circles or partners to help learners develop their skills. But there is more to teaching conversation than just speaking English. During this workshop you’ll learn strategies, best practices, and fun and interactive activities and games to help ESL learners build fluency in English conversation. The strategies and activities learned in this workshop will prepare you to help learners become more active members in their communities. Participants who complete this workshop will receive a 3-hour certificate of completion from the Minnesota Literacy Council.
