ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE (ESL)
International Student Ministry (ISM) of Pittsburgh offers one ESL class weekly during the school year: “Learn and Practice English with Your Child” – a one-hour, parent-child class with a focus on practicing English with your child in fun ways. Learn English vocabulary that relates to a child’s daily life, play games in English, and talk about culture, customs, and holidays in the U.S.A., as well as from your native country. The class will also include grammar and vocabulary review for the adults. Our instructor is Anna Mussmann, a writer and our certified Teacher-in-Residence, as well as a mother of two young children.
There is also the opportunity for an “Introduction to the Bible and Christianity.” As always, there is no cost; FREE!
We also offer conversation partners and friendship families upon request.
There is no cost and all materials are provided.
All instruction takes place in McKinney Hall (main floor), here at First Trinity Church.
Our ISM Director and Chaplain is Pastor Eric R. Andræ (S.T.M., Lic.). Pastor Andræ has special affinity for and identity with the international community: while holding dual citizenship, he is himself a native of Sweden who had to learn English upon immigrating; his wife, Paola, is a native of Mexico. He is the Associate Pastor for International Ministry at First Trinity.
All are welcome!
