SPRING 2023 - Trinity English Conversation Classes for refugees and asylum seekers We are currently seeking volunteers for the Semester II series of the very successful English conversation classes in Trinity for adults who are seeking refuge in Ireland, which we offer as part of the University of Sanctuary initiative. These classes are informal and welcoming opportunities for intercultural sharing through social interaction. They focus on speaking skills and English for everyday use, with volunteers working with small groups of learners in a supportive environment. To volunteer for the Hilary Term classes, please complete this short form: ttps://forms.office.com/e/TEAhP0xF4x The classes will run for 10 weeks from 7th February to 12th April 2023, there will be no classes during Reading Week. The classes will be held at the following times: TUESDAY evenings - 6pm to 8pm, from 7th February to 11th April. WEDNESDAY daytime - 11am to 1pm, from 8th February to 12th April. You can volunteer for EITHER Tuesdays OR Wednesdays. No previous experience is required as we will hold an online information/training session on Friday 27th January from 1pm to 2pm for all who are interested.  It would be very useful for you to attend this information/ training session, but it will also be recorded if you cannot make the live online session.  If you have any questions about the classes, please contact: englishclass@tcd.ie. We would be delighted if you can volunteer for the Hilary Term classes - also, please spread the word!
