Q. How do I find and register for language classes?
All of the events that the library has to offer in terms of language learning can be found on the online calendar - https://gwinnettpl.libnet.info/events.
Available programs for language learning right now include:
English in your language which is offered to customers learning English and they are able to learn from someone who speaks their native language. Currently this is taught in different sessions by staff members who speak Spanish, Korean, Cantonese, Vietnamese and Japanese
Let's Talk which is relaxed event at which customers who do not speak English as their first language have the opportunity to practice their English conversation skills. There are open to any and all customers who are working to learn English
Hello! Hola! which is a program designed to help customers learn basic Spanish. A staff member presents the class in a bilingual format so it is easy for new Spanish speakers to understand
Hello! Xin Chao! which is a program designed to help customer learn basic Vietnamese. A staff member presents the class in a bilingual format so it is easy for new Vietnamese speakers to understand.
More languages may be added in the future but as of right now these are our only offerings. All classes are currently only being conducted in a virtual setting, there are no in person classes at this time.
The next session for all of these programs starts on June 7th. Classes fill up quickly so we recommend checking the calendar up to 3-4 weeks in advance to register for any of these classes.
