绝不仅仅是免费英文课!

基督教路德会弥赛亚教堂开办的免费英文班,已经被很多华人所熟知,但在真正体验到免费ESL课程后,他们深切体会到,在这里得到的可绝不仅仅是免费英文课!

教堂的刘牧师、也是英文班创办人,他说:“要想真正学好英语,就要对美国历史、美国社会、美国文化、美国教育,甚至是美国饮食都要有一定的了解。我们教会(中、英文)在每一个季节都会安排不同的活动来充实我们的ESL教学。拜访美国家庭、Potluck、包饺子、乒乓、游泳、看球赛、各种形式的义卖活动……每一个活动都是我们精心策划并准备,每一个活动都有美国人和中国人共同参加。”

弥赛亚教堂开办的免费英文班已有7年的历史,每一位志愿老师都是来自美国社会各行各业的精英,不仅经验丰富,更重要的是非常具有爱心与耐心。刘牧师说:“当初,看到有很多刚刚移民到这里来的人,还有一些老年人,常常因不懂英文而遇到很多麻烦或是吃了很多亏,于是就想设立英文班。我自己刚到美国时也不会英文,对此我是感同身受!当然,能够实实在在地帮助到更多的人,是我们基督教会应尽的责任,是我们的荣耀!”

来吧!刘牧师和他的志愿者老师们,每周三晚、周日下午都会如约在这里等待你的到来,而不同级别的课程(华人教英文基础班、美国人教会话班及入籍班),可以满足不同人群的需求。

春季课程3月23日开课至5月25日,周日2:00-3:30pm;周三7:15-8:45pm(4月23日至5月21日)。高中学生可做义工Community Service,

Those who enroll for the course will be given a notebook with all lessons and appendices at the beginning. For those who would like to review only particular lessons, booklets will be available on Sunday morning of the lesson. Babysitting at church can be arranged, if needed. Please contact Pastor for more information and to enroll in the class.

Bring your questions, guests, friends, neighbors, not-yet-member family members. Membership commitment is not required. Just exploring? Fine. Come, let us share the faith!
