Need stronger collegiate essay structure? Want to polish up your resume? Join us for the America House Writing Workshop, a four-part course in which we will work on academic, business and creative writing, as well as pre-writing and editing strategies. Having a better command of the written word makes you a more effective communicator; It enables you to get your ideas across clearly, and with grace. But writing well is an ongoing challenge that requires consistent personal effort, as well as support and feedback from others. To that end, this workshop offers you the chance to push yourself to become a better writer, and in return, it gives us the gift of collaboration. Let’s make it happen, together, writing well now and forever. Participants who attend all four sessions will receive a Certificate of Completion for English Writing Workshop.
Shining Scribes volume 8, in which we plunge with fervor and poised pens into our holiday writings! We’ll respond ‘Mad Libs’ style to a wry Tom Waits Christmas song, and craft Christmas Letters of the creative nonfiction variety.
Remember to bring your passport or driver's license.
The Podcast club will feature podcasts that are on a variety of themes and feature many different perspectives. Participants will get new opportunities to get more listening practice outside of the classroom, while learning new vocabulary and content each Saturday while discussing the week’s podcast episode.
This week we are discussing Stay out of the Sun Day (yes its a real thing!). With the summer sun beating down on us, let's enjoy some shade and air conditioning at America House during our weekly English speaking club.
Let freedom ring! Join us for a star-spangled U.S. Independence Day celebration. We’ll be grilling and chilling, dancing and singing and of course playing games and giving out awesome prizes. Get your red, white and blue out of the closet and celebrate with us at America House's 5th Annual Independence Day.
