In 2019, I took the TEFL training and Cultural Competence certification course and worked as an assistant teacher in one of the adult literacy ESL classrooms. The community is warm, welcoming, and meaningfully diverse - the richness of everyone's differences (language, culture, beliefs, citizenship status) is celebrated and supported. I especially enjoyed the inviting, social setup of the CLC (Connect Language Center) - a communal kitchen with a free coffee and tea station, which leads to a cozily furnished lounge with large sofas, tables, and shelves and shelves of books. Because the CLC is designed to encourage social interaction, the most powerful form of language practice happens naturally there: community-building through repeated, social exchanges with fellow students and teachers.
