Do you want to improve your English skills? Are you interested in cooking new recipes and eating delicious food? If so, the Culinary Literacy Center has the class for you!
Edible Alphabet is a free ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) program offered by the Free Library's Culinary Literacy Center. The mission is to teach the English language and literacy skills through hands-on cooking projects. Students will learn vocabulary and grammar, as well as practice listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English while cooking a new delicious recipe every week in our kitchen classroom.
Spots are still available for our Summer 2018 course. Class begins June 26 and runs for six weeks on Tuesdays from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Classes will take place at the Culinary Literacy Center, located on the 4th floor of the Parkway Central Library at 1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19103.
This program is best suited to students who are high beginner to intermediate English speakers and attendance is preferred at all of the six classes. The dates of the classes are June 26, July 3, July 10, July 17, July 24, and July 31.
