Wesleyan Language Bank Seeking Turkish Interpreters

Insert Thanksgiving-related Turkey pun here, thanks to Hannah Bailenson ’13:

The Wesleyan Language Bank is seeking Turkish-speaking students who are interested in assisting at parent/teacher conferences at
Middletown Public Schools. Several schools have already requested interpreters to assist Turkish-speaking families at these meetings.

The conferences will take place during the last week of November and/or first week of December (specific dates and times to be determined). Individual conferences take about 15 minutes.

Please email the Language Bank Coordinator, Hannah Bailenson, at weslangbank(at)gmail(dot)com if you are interested and/or have questions. You can also visit this page for more information about the Language Bank.

Deadline: soon.
Contact: weslangbank(at)gmail(dot)com
