Please come to watch the movie, and also to learn more about WesESL, and how to get involved next semester.

Teach ESL this summer!

Pretty sweet! There’s an English as a Second Language program going on right here at Wesleyan that serves the custodial workers who work on campus.

If you’re staying on campus this summer and want to make a difference in the lives of those who make the university run (and meet people outside the Bubble), sign up to teach ESL this summer! You only need to sign up for 2-3 hours a week.

E-mail Katie Hanna ’09 at khanna@wes for more information.

Seriously, this is a sweet program. I’m going to be doing it; you should too!
