English for a Better Life
ACCTS Community Center at AlHusn has started its fifth English course gathering women from Jordanian and Syrian backgrounds.
6th of September 2017
AlHusn, Jordan (ACCTS) - The Center launched its fifth English course on the 6th of September 2017, attended by fourteen women from Jordanian and Syrian backgrounds.
The Center is deeply aware of the fact that Learning English is crucial nowadays as it is one of, if not the main language, globally speaking. People all over the world study it. Some countries have it mandatory as a second language in their school syllabuses, thus exposing the population to the language at a young age. It is the language of science, aviation, computers, diplomacy, and tourism, etc. Knowing English increases your chances of getting a good job in companies within your home country or finding work abroad. But on a more practical level, it is the language of the Internet. Many websites are written in English - without knowledge of the language it’s hard to take part in forums and discussions.
For the above reasons and to respond to beneficiaries needs, the Center has started the fifth English course for mixed group of Jordanian and Syrian women. The course will last to the end of December.
Beneficiaries felt more confident after joining the course. They have also mentioned that spending time in the class gives them opportunities not only to learn, but also to have fun together.
