English Classes and Adult Literacy in Nicaragua

Over the last ten weeks GVI Phoenix Staff and volunteers have been giving English classes in both La Thompson and Chiriza twice a week. Attendance is steadily picking up and we have the same consistent groups of children and younger adults attending each week. The volunteers have brought great energy to the English classes and have enjoyed the dynamic presented through teaching English.

Further, we have offered Adult Literacy classes and one mother in Chiriza has begun to come to classes each week. She wants to improve her reading and writing and we’re hoping more adults come to these classes as illiteracy among adults is high in these communities.
