Free ESL Classes — New Locations and Times!

We now have 9 locations in Northern Pinellas County for LCUP’s English Conversation Classes, with a total of 17 classes available each week.  These classes have a variety of educational opportunities: some provide basic phonics and grammar instruction, while others are designed for more intermediate students.  The strength of all of these informal classes is to give our adult students a chance to visit with each other and tutors and practice their English language skills. 

There is no cost, so please attend many of the classes to see what interests you most.

THE GREAT AMERICAN TEACH-IN

Adult learners from the Dunedin Elementary School ESL Conversation Class participated in the Great American Teach-In on November 14.  The learners were parents of students at the school, and they and their teachers read bilingual books in English and Spanish to kindergarten students at the school.

Conversation Class at Dunedin Public Library

Students in the Dunedin Library Conversation Class enjoy finding partners to put together three phrases to make complete sentences. The students then created their own sentences using the phrases from the game.

 

Happy English learners proudly display the sentences they have created from individual phrases.

Back to School Event and Health Fair at North Greenwood Community Center

Soha Awad,  LCUP tutor (on the right in picture below), greeted students and parents at North Greenwood Community Center’s Back to School Event and Health Fair.  She had big mouth cat and shark pictures to color and crayons to send home. 

Several volunteers attended the event on August 4 to talk about ESL classes offered by the Literacy Council of Upper Pinellas. We now have 14 English classes at 9 locations and individual tutors.  Therefore, more volunteers are always needed.
