English Corner was created to help internationals strengthen their English-speaking abilities and gain confidence conversing in English. The sessions will include conversations in big and small groups, presentation skills and reading techniques.
English Corner is organized by Karen Hong and Jonathan McCall of City Hope and is a free program. Jonathan organized two similar programs for students and professionals when he recently worked in China, and Karen taught a similar class in Boston for international scholars and scientists.
