Introducing our new ESL Specialist!

We are happy to introduce our new ESL Specialist, Jennifer Lockhart! Jennifer has recently joined the Literacy team, and we are very excited she is here. We asked her to introduce herself:

Enhance Your Learning with ESL Podcast!

ESL Podcast logo

For an adult learner who needs some English listening practice and has Internet access, we highly recommend eslpod.com.  Learners can go to the site and choose a podcast that is of interest to them. They can listen to it slowly, listen to an explanation of it, and/or listen to it quickly; at the same time they can read the transcript if they'd like. The service is free, but interested students can pay for a basic or premium membership if they would like to receive the "Learning Guides."  

Continuing Education for ESL Tutors

Every Friday at 3:00 (CST), the American TESOL Institute conducts a free 30 minute webinar on a topic of interest for ESL teachers and tutors. Visit http://www.livebinders.com/play/present?id=292127 for more information and to access archives of previous webinars. If you complete a webinar, be sure to turn in a short summary to the literacy office for continuing education credit. 

Celebrate Citizenship!

YWCA Tulsa is hosting Citizenship Day on July 28th from 9am-noon at the YWCA East Multicultural Center. This event will provide information to permanent residents who are interested in becoming US citizens. The first 50 people to RSVP to (918) 663-0377 will receive a free consultation with an immigration attorney, so call soon to register! Be sure to take your Permanent Resident Card (Green Card) along with you to qualify for a consultation. 

Understanding Health Care Reform

Do you think health care reform is a bit perplexing? If so,  you can imagine how much more confusing it might be for someone with limited English proficiency or low literacy skills.
