Neighbors teaching Neighbors!

Long Branch - Nob Hill: English Circle Group Picture.

August 30, 2010 was our fourth Nob Hill English mutual support circle this time with a record number of 16 neighbors from the Long Branch area.  Two hours of non stop mutual support and English teaching between neighbors. We had 3 groups with their own teachers supporting their neighbors on how to communicate at work in English.

After our traditional Impact Check – in we divided our neighbors in three groups, Andre a student from Montgomery College, Irene a neighbor from Nob Hill and Samuel a regular student at our English circles took over and started teaching their own neighbors English in a very special and supportive way.

It was incredible to see how everyone supported their neighbors , Samuel opened his back pack a took out an English book and stared teaching Jose English, Irene made up a song with the days of the week and had all her group sing it WOW!

Next Monday is a holiday but the group is so motivated that when we mentioned that there would not be classes they all said lets do it any way, we felt so good to see them willing to learn and have their neighbors learn as well that we agreed to have classes on a holiday.

We invite you to experience our English mutual support circle and meet our neighbors in Nob Hill every Monday from 7:30 pm to 9:00 and some times a little bit later…
