“What’s Your Name? My Name Is…”

Posted by irakowler on January 13, 2011

After our introductory meeting last month, the Fields of Silver Spring English Class officially began last night in the community party room!  We had over 30 community members take part– we even ran out of chairs by the end of the night.  The first lesson focused on simple greetings and the alphabet.  After practicing how to introduce ourselves, we all learned how to pronounce the letters in English.  An intense game of hangman helped everyone remember the proper pronunciations.

Nathalie's team pulls out a victory in the final game of Hangman. The word? Snow!

Thanks to our great volunteer teachers, Nathalie, Emily, and Byron, the class was a rousing success!  We will be meeting every Wednesday and Thursday from 7-9pm.  Feel free to drop by!

See everyone again tomorrow!
