English Study and Practice for Non-Native Speakers

I often see members of this group looking for time to study English, so I would like to give the non-native English speakers in our group an opportunity to improve their English just like they have given us the chance to improve our Chinese, Japanese, or Korean skills.

I also hope that by extending this opportunity, we will encourage more native speakers of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean to participate and aid our CJK practice on Wednesdays.

Our practice will include games, discussion, and reading activities. The reading activities will be conducted on a bi-weekly (every other week) basis. When we do not have a reading activity, we will do discussion based activities instead.

Any and all suggestions for methods, activities, etc. are welcome.

This group was created to function as an exchange. We help you and you help us.

For native speakers of Chinese, Japanese, or Korean, we hope that you will attend our meeting on Wednesday to help our language learners.

Also, this is a group for serious study.

Most of the study and language-exchange groups out there are more social than educational and more than anything our group wants to help non-native speakers improve and better enjoy the English language.

Of course, we will have fun with games and discussion, and we may have coffee or lunch after our meeting, but our focus is on learning. You will make friends here, but if that is your only purpose, it would be better to try another group.

Finally, for any native English speakers who are interested in helping, please contact me (Ajani) before RSVP'ing. We currently have all the help we need but if you really think you can be an asset to our group, we can talk about it.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to contact me (Ajani).

    Hi everyone,

    For tomorrow, we will look at the following essay on the idea of the "model minority".

    http://iis.stat.wright.edu/munsup.seoh/pointOfViews/Discrimination/modelMinority.htm

    The article is a little long, but we don't have to read all of it.
    Please print out a copy and bring it in tomorrow for our meeting.

    Also, because of the storm that is hitting New York at the moment, there is a chance that the meeting will be canceled.

    Right now, it doesn't look so bad outside, but if the trains are shutdown, a lot of people, including myself, won't be able to come and we will have no choice but to cancel meeting.

    Be safe and stay warm everyone!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
