The UUCA ESOL program provides free classes and conversation
sessions geared to adult foreigners who are fairly proficient in English
speaking and writing but seek language enrichment, grammar improvement, accent
reduction, plus increased knowledge of American culture and idioms. Teacher-led
classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Conversation-only sessions
are offered on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings.
ESOL includes an email-based English Writing Improvement
Program assigns English writing coaches to those wishing to have their writing
reviewed and improved. This is an evolving program that might include
face-to-face meetings in person or via the Internet.
ESOL also serves to introduce students to Unitarian
Universalism and its place among other religions. ESOL students sometimes
attend UUCAVA events and have even become members or friends.
ESOL volunteer teachers and facilitators find their
participation a joy rather than a burden, but occasionally we experience the
need for new volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering in any way,
please contact Ric Blacksten (ESOL Chair), 703.980.5899,
