Classes Set for Tutors of English as Second Language

UW-River Falls is accepting registrations for Workplace English as a Second Language courses to be offered next spring.

"TESOL for Specific Purposes" is a practical, hands-on course designed to train tutors to help non-English speaking adults communicate more effectively in their workplaces and their communities.

TESOL is Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

Beginning Jan. 22, the tutor training classes will meet for 10 weeks on Wednesdays, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Classes will also be broadcasted via interactive television to three other Wisconsin sites, including Barron High School.

Participants who successfully complete the tutor-training course may register for field experience tutoring non-English speaking workers employed in local businesses. Fees for the class and field experience vary according to the residency of the participant, the selected class location, and the selected credit option.

Class space is limited. Registrations will be accepted until the first day of class, but a late fee applies after Jan. 1.
