EWI in the Community: Speaking at the New Neighbors ESL classes

7 Nov

Today we were given the opportunity to speak with the charming students of the New Neighbors ESL classes, at Christ Church in Old Town.  It was a great chance for us to extend our services to some of the newest immigrants in Alexandria.

At 10:30 sharp, Perri, Mina, and I began with a dazzling presentation; extolling the virtues of our wonderful organization.  With strong diction and poise, Perri delivered a knockout punch of a speech, that left the students on the edge of their seats.

Our table was soon swarmed with beaming eyes and bright minds; and in a flash, our pamphlets were gone!   It was great to see so much ambition, even through the barrier of language.

All in all, we felt our presence was very well received.  Hopefully we will see many of their faces in the coming ETS classes. Special thanks to Susanne O’Neill for arranging the event. For more information about New Neighbors ESL classes, see their website at www.campagnacenter.org

Till our next adventure…
