The Littleton Immigrant Resources Center is a Department of Justice (DOJ) recognized organization.

LIRC is staffed by knowledgeable employees and volunteers who can fill out applications and represent its clients before the USCIS (US Citizenship and Immigration Services).
The Center is staffed with bi-lingual Spanish speakers who can answer questions regarding classes, tutoring and immigration issues and processes.

You are invited to our quarterly volunteer workshop! Come meet your fellow volunteers, learn about language acquisition and new teaching strategies, AND hang out with Betsy and Erica.
What will be covered?
Language acquisition theories
Golden Rules of language teaching
Engagements to try with your students
This workshop is designed for both language partners and citizenship mentors. Though we won't focus as much on the citizenship interview material, tutoring for citizenship is also tutoring English, so all of the information presented will benefit everyone working with a student. We will discuss how the strategies we present could be used for ESL or citizenship students, and adapted for beginner or advanced levels.
