For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Jeremiah 29:11


From July 10-12 the Messiah College Graduate TESOL Program provided a three-day intensive English course for local adult ESL students. Sixteen ESL students were taught by seven TESOL graduate students, as part of their TESOL Methods and internship courses. Directed by Dr. Jan Dormer, the intensive ESL event proved to be beneficial for students and teacher-trainees alike.
