As this week's weather reminds us, fall is here!
I hope you are enjoying the many colors of the season.

As always, September is a very busy time for all of us at EAL -
Our Fall Conversation Groups kick off this week, with almost 200 learners enrolled...

New tutoring matches are also in progress. Learners will be matched with a local tutor for online instruction for one year or 100 hours....

Planning has begun for our annual Volunteer Development Conference; the format for this year's program will be announced soon....

The pilot for our newest program, Caregiver English, is also set to launch later this fall.

EAL Learners use Haiku to Practice English
EAL Conversation Group facilitators are fun and creative people, who put tremendous thought and energy into planning activities for their learners!
EAL volunteer Cathy recently invited her learners to practice their English using Haiku,
a Japanese poetic form used to express a mood or feeling.
