Fall 2017 Free Conversation Class Calendar – Join Us!

Here is the schedule for Literacy Council of Upper Pinellas’ Conversation Classes for September, October, November and December.  A good way to practice your English skills is to talk to other learners, and these fun sessions are great.  You can speak  English and learn some new vocabulary and how the English language works.  Children are welcome and you can just stop in and see what we do.  We look forward to seeing you there.

The Literacy Council of Upper Pinellas (LCUP) is hosting a free training session for literacy volunteers on Saturday, October 14, 2017, at the Dunedin Community Center, 1920 Pinehurst Road, Dunedin, Florida, from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm.  The Literacy Council of Upper Pinellas is a 501(c)3 non-profit, all-volunteer organization, which is dedicated to helping adults in Northern Pinellas County to read, write and speak English.

This six-hour training is required for all tutors. This training provides tutors with the initial tools to help improve the literacy skills (reading, writing, speaking, and listening) of adults who are English-speaking and those who are non-English-speaking.  Tutors must be 21 years of age or older and interested in improving someone’s life by serving as a volunteer tutor.    Prior teaching experience or fluency in another language is not required, but a good command of the English language and grammar is required.  Basic computer experience is helpful.

Call 727-298-3080 x1724 to register or request more information or complete the contact form below.
