New ESL Classes
Posted 12/14/2015 02:07PM

Everyone learns at IC!  At the beginning of November, members of the IC Physical Plant and Security Staff on both began taking classes in English as a Second Language. The adult students are learning English for professional development and to help them communicate more effectively with foreigners visiting the campuses. Teachers Lara Mansour and Christine Der-Sarkissian at Ain Aar and Carla El Oud and Connie Hadba at Ras Beirut provide classes twice per week to approximately 45 staff members. The course was requested by the IC Physical Plant and is being developed through the ERC. Participants are finding the classes enjoyable and feel they are learning something they can use both on campus and in public. Lara Mansour had her camera with her when she got this picture; she wrote, “I caught two of the participants practicing what they learnt in Lesson 1 the other day. It was rewarding to see and very encouraging too.”

 “The class has been fun,” commented the students, “and we are learning. Thank you.”
