Summer Class in TESOL

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is offering a course this summer for people interested in teaching English to speakers of other languages. The class,"TESOL for Specific Purposes," will be offered in River Falls and via interactive television in Viroqua, Wis., beginning June 16.

"This practical, hands-on course is designed to train tutors who can help non-English speaking adults communicate more effectively in their workplaces and in their communities," said Kristen Allen, program coordinator.

The tutor-training classes will be held daily from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for two weeks. Participants who successfully complete the tutor-training course may register for field experience tutoring non-English speaking workers employed in local businesses. The UW-RF Workplace English as a Second Language program, which offers the class, is also hosting a conference for area employers and community leaders on managing diversity in their workplaces and communities on June 4 in River Falls.
