Read this blog ! Practice your English! Come on ( venga ya)!. No deadlines (fechas tope). No exams. It's just a fun way to learn the language.
Volunteer your time: Make a difference
Organize and carry out an event. Talk to people and get to know them. Practice your languages on our multi-lingual campus. Then give all the proceeds to charity!
That's what we do in the Language Center, and we've been doing it for 9 years. Have you noticed? It was hard not to if you were in Building B this trimester. Maybe you saw the GIANT PUMPKINS on display or heard the CHRISTMAS CAROLS. You might even have participated.
Many of you WERE involved in the VOLUNTEER activities, donating your time and effort, demonstating your culinary skills, your sales ability, and your recycling efforts at our cooking contest, candy cane sale and book exchange & sale. We appreciate your help and the NGO Aprendices Visuales will too. You may also have earned a Mandela Campus T-shirt for your help and enthusiasm. A special thanks goes to the NURSING DEPARTMENT staff, and the student volunteers. Ana Correia and Sofia Sousa, Erasmus exchange students from Portugal, volunteered to sell candy canes for the Language Center. Thank you !
* Next March we'll have another book sale. You're all welcome to participate.
