Amihan April Mella-Alcahar
Thursday, November 19 from 16:20 in Room 6206
In order to appreciate the relevance of studying English, students must be able to relate their own interests to their study. In addition, studying English must be supplemented with practical experience using the English language. In this lecture, we will look at how getting involved in volunteer groups can provide opportunities to use English in practical situations. Examples of groups in the Philippines will be discussed.
