Make connections with alums in the local area.
All class years are welcome to join gatherings in our community. Whether you are new to the area or have lived here for years, we look forward to bringing everyone together and sharing Wellesley bonds.
Exposure to other cultures is both fascinating and enriching. In visiting a foreign country, we come to appreciate the people and their values, history, language, culture and, of course, food. The same thing can happen at home when we encounter individuals from other backgrounds. The contrasts give us a deeper understanding of our own beliefs and practices.
Alicia Lopez, Diana Larkin and Helen Clement are delighted to share how working with English Language Learners provides a remarkable understanding of other cultures. We will discuss with you three ways we have worked with people who are learning English as an additional language. Alicia Lopez will describe her experiences teaching students in a public-school setting. Helen Clement will speak about teaching English to young Buddhist monks in Bhutan. Finally, Diana Larkin will talk about hosting international students in her home.
