Although summer is traditionally a laid back time, English At Large did not slow down this summer. With a long waitlist of learners, we spent the summer offering innovative and fun programs for English At Large participants, including those who are eager to get some English exposure in any way possible.

Featured Poetry by English At Large Learner: Martha Ruth Blass Huerta, Mexico



         Watching my window

         I can see my memories

         Life is my open door...






I see reflections

Everywhere more reflections

Some clouds are falling

A tree is in a puddle

The day becomes a mirror...
