How to Learn a New Language – Part 7

Posted on April 19, 2015

Volunteer! If you do not have much opportunity to practice English at home or work but you have extra time available, you can easily find a volunteer opportunity that will put you in an English-speaking environment. Your volunteer help will be very much appreciated by whatever organization you choose to volunteer for, and you might even learn new skills! Volunteering is an opportunity for you to give back to the community that gives us all so much. One place to start is the Fairfax County Volunteer Web Site. But there are many others. In fact, some of our own St. Mark ESL students provide volunteer support to the ESL program by helping with community outreach efforts, translation of advertising materials into non-English languages, and interpreting for new students at registration. You can volunteer too!
