Teaching English to refugees

December 20, 2007 in News

Clongowes2007 Fourteen Clongowes Transition Year students and two teachers plan to use Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) to assist local asylum seekers and refugees. They are a pilot group who completed an intensive 20 hour course last week and will work closely with the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) to provide language tuition. They are following the example of the successful Belvedere College TEFL programme that has been in operation for a number of years. Links: www.clongowes.com
