St. Damien Parish offers two English Instruction Sessions every year, one session in the fall and another in the winter. Each session consists of approximately 12 classes which are held once a week in the evenings. The classes provide instruction in reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. The class format is highly interactive, consisting of group instruction and “one on one” volunteer interaction with the students in order to process the lesson. The student population is typically native Spanish speakers although all languages are welcome. Volunteers are always welcome and needed as ideally each student is paired with a volunteer.
