"Issues in Global Displacement: Voix Francophones" Students Partner with Church World Service

Sunday, January 8, 2017

Students from Deb Reisinger's Issues in Global Displacement: Voix Francophones class partnered with Church World Service to work in a beginning ESL class. They also participated in a workshop on teaching ESL. At another event, Duke students tried learning Thai to help destabilize them a bit and increase their understanding of how their community partners might feel as they attempt to communicate in English. In the fall they hosted a picnic for over 40 French-speaking immigrants, offering face painting, soccer, and pumpkin carving.
