115 Syrian newcomers from age 8-33 in temporary housing. 30 devoted, passionate volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds. A pop-up ESL Microschool. Since January, the volunteer-designed and operated Saturday and Tuesday ESL classes at the Toronto Plaza Hotel have provided engaged, eager learners with the opportunity to learn school routines, be immersed in the English language and practice their skills. We have seen remarkable progress and increases in confidence.
We continue to operate classes on Saturdays and Tuesdays at The Plaza Hotel and will continue to do so until there is no longer a need. Our team is designing ways we can continue to support newcomers with language development, through conversation circles, tutoring and standardized test coaching.
