ESL Study Group

March 9th, 2013, 10:30am to 12:00pm
Practice makes perfect! Our ESL study group is for beginner and intermediate adult learners who want to improve English listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Students at a very low level or a very high level may benefit from the group, but everyone is welcome.

If you want to practice conversation only, please try Conversation Cafe, a program held by Literacy Volunteers of Western Cook County, which meets Saturday mornings from 9:30-11 am at 125 N. Marion St., Suite 301, Oak Park, IL 60301. Please call (708) 848-8499 to register for Conversation Cafe before attending.

GED Study Group

March 9th, 2013, 9:00am to 10:30am
After taking pre-tests to determine which subjects need improvement, students study for the GED test using a personalized learning plan. Some topics are studied as a group, while others topics may be studied one-to-one with a tutor, or studied independently using suggested materials. Students may use a library card to check out study books. When students are ready, they can take a mock-GED full-length test to simulate the complete experience, which will let them know if they are truly ready to pass the test.

Math Study Group

March 8th, 2013, 10:00am to 11:30am
Learn and review basic math concepts including whole numbers, fractions, decimals, ratios, proportions, percents, basic algebra, basic geometry, measurement, graphs/charts, and word problems. The topics covered in this study group are represented on most standardized tests such as the TABE, GED, SAT/ACT, COMPASS, Accuplacer, ASVAB, GRE, and the GMAT. Berwyn residents receive priority registration in this drop-in group. Adults 18 and older.
