Rave reviews for first-ever Conversation Club

About twenty SASS students and twenty community members attended the first ever SASS Conversation Club on Friday, July 14 at Sequoia Adult School in Menlo Park.
The Club used a "speed dating model." Students and community members paired off and chatted for about 10 minutes; then changed partners.   

The Conversation Club was initiated by Jen Wang, a SASS tutor who ran a conversation club when she taught in Colombia.   
"I wanted to give SASS students an opportunity to practice English in a relaxed and fun environment and I wanted to give community members the opportunity to meet some of our students," Jen says. "The first meeting more than exceeded my expectations both in terms of the number of people who participated and the level of enthusiasm shown both by students and members of the community."
