The Learning Assistance Service (LAS) of the University Counseling Center is looking for a few well organized and self-motivated individuals to meaningfully assist the LAS ESOL conversation program during the 2014-15 academic year.
The UMD ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) Conversation Program is a community that specifically aims to bring students and community members from diverse cultures together through authentic language learning/teaching, cultural exchange, social activities, and a passion for multiculturalism.
- UMD Students who are or will be education majors, interested in/ experienced with TESOL, and/or international cultural exchanges are strongly preferred.
- The internship would be up to 10-15 hours a week for academic credit.
- Interns will take on program administrative, outreach, communication/advertising and social event planning responsibilities.
If you are interested, send a resume and a brief cover letter to the coordinator Adam Lax at umdesol(at)gmail.com.
Also, you can check out our website http://www.counseling.umd.edu/LAS/html/esolconvprog.html to learn more about our program.
Come out to McKeldin Mall on Sunday, May 4, for outdoor fun and games! ESOL will provide sports equipment (volleyballs, soccer balls and frisbees) for your use, but feel free to bring any personal sports gear that you might have!
If you wish to bring your kids: we will plan a water balloon toss for both parents, students and kids to participate! You can also come for hand games or group games that do not require any sports activity. All planned activities will end at 4:30 p.m. but you are welcomed to stay or leave as you please.
*If it rains, we will move our event indoors into Stamp's Baltimore Room (the back room on the ground floor, nearby where the eatery is). We will then plan games like Mafia or cards altogether.
