ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE (ESL)
We offer one class each week during the school year which covers “Rules of the English Language” and “Conversation and Culture.” Our instructor is Emily Olmstead, a Linguistics major at the Univ. of Pittsburgh.
The class meets on Mondays, 10:00-11:00 a.m., and is followed by an “Introduction to the Bible and Christianity, ” 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon. As always, there is no cost; FREE! And free childcare is also provided – just let us know.
We also offer conversation partners and friendship families upon request.
There is no cost and all materials are provided.
All instruction takes place in McKinney Hall (main floor), here at First Trinity Church.
Our ISM Director and Chaplain, Pastor Eric R. Andræ (S.T.M., Lic.), leads the Bible Studies which introduce students to the Biblical, Christian use of the English language. While clearly Christian in scope, the Bible Studies and services are meant to allow the students to grow in their appreciation of Christianity and the love of Jesus Christ without any pressure to convert. Pastor Andræ has special affinity for and identity with the international community: while holding dual citizenship, he is himself a native of Sweden who had to learn English upon immigrating; his wife, Paola, is a native of Mexico. He is the Associate Pastor for International Ministry at First Trinity.
All are welcome!
