GSE Students Teach English in Penn Communities Through PEDAL Program
March 17, 2017
The room is packed. The 24 adults seated in the class, from at least a dozen countries, are each connected to someone at the University of Pennsylvania. They are here to learn to speak English, free of charge.
The teacher is a student herself, in the second year of the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages master’s program in Penn’s Graduate School of Education. Assisting her are four first-year Penn GSE students, all volunteers.
