Restoration Outreach Programs (ROP) is reaching the world at our doorstep through our ESL Classes (English as a Second Language). ROP serves a large multicultural community made up of immigrants and refugees from around the globe.
These ESL classes provide individuals who speak little or no English with an opportunity to learn and practice English so that they might function more effectively within our society.
Teachers and tutors will have the opportunity for relational ministry as they build friendships with our eager refugee and immigrant students in the community. Classroom assistants have the opportunity to sit alongside students, during class, and give additional personal help to students.
Open Enrollment: August 14th, 15th, and 16th from 9:00 am to 12 pm. Cost of $15 for 16 weeks of classes and supplies. Classes beginning August 21st, 2017.
Class schedule: Six classes are meeting Tuesday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Each class meets for one and a half hours for two days per week.
English Second Language or ESL is in their fifth year at ROP. We celebrate with our students for their accomplishments bi-monthly. We are currently using the Bible, the Oxford Dictionary, and Intercambio curriculum. We serve about 50 students. Two classes have completed an Intercambio semester level workbook, which is phenomenal.
A wonderful team of volunteers serves the Aurora immigrant community. They’re excited to offer the three above mentioned curriculum because of their relevance to issues that our students will need for daily life and offer them a better chance of success in the United States.
We are also teaching the Life of Jesus from Luke which will hold them in good stead all of their lives. We have celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas with special groups and classroom parties. We look forward to all that God has in store for us this spring. Come and visit any Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday morning from 9-12. **Please call ahead.
