What service did you perform?
Two years ago as my sophomore service project I helped out at English as a Second Language classes. They were held at participating churches people of any background and first language can come and learn to read, write, and speak English.
How did you get involved?
I got involved by seeing this opprotunity on social networks and by word of mouth from people I go to school with.
Why is this extraordinary?
This is extraordinary because I got to help adults who felt lost in our country because they didn’t understand English, learn and understand English better so that they can strive for a better life in our country.
How can others get involved?
Other people can get involved the same way I did. They can ask their teachers who are in charge of service at their school or look in community newspapers or flyers that announce opprotunities like this.
What is the most rewarding thing about it?
The most rewarding thing about this service is when some of the immigrantss didn’t understand something finally understand it because of your teaching. Also, using my knowledge of the Spanish language specifically to help relate to those that I was teaching and putting it to the test.
