Afghan Refugees – VART news (update)

Conversation Partners Are Needed for Afghan Refugees (update)


An exciting opportunity is being offered to us. As you have watched pictures of the Afghan refugees in the last few months, have you wondered what they are like as people? We now have the chance to converse with Afghan refugees.  The Diocese of Olympia is recruiting volunteers to provide English language practice on Zoom meetings with new members of our region’s Afghan community. As they take English classes, they need English speakers to practice their new language.  You will meet for an hour each week on Zoom with your conversation partner so that they can practice what they have learned in their English class.  As you ask routine practice questions like “What did you do yesterday?” or “What did you do last year?”  you will get insights into their lives.
