ESL-filter: Where can a fairly advanced ESL student practice her English for free?
posted by ambrosia to education (5 answers total)
My sister-in-law teaches ESL classes in Arlington, Virginia. She has a Thai student who is pretty advanced and is looking for a safe place to practice her English face-to-face with another person. Her local library has a conversation practice group weekday evenings but she can't make that because it conflicts with her work schedule. She does have free time weekday mornings, however.
What other places might an ESL student get some English practice in for free? Are there volunteer opportunities that would get her some English practice while she volunteers?
