Poverty and war have had a catastrophic effect on both children's and adults' education. In the current political climate, millions have been displaced and settled in camps without basic necessities, much less any form of education. As ESL instructors, can we play a role to support these individuals through our teaching profession by volunteering? What role does English actually play in their lives? This webinar will explore these questions based on first-hand interactions with refugees in multiple contexts.
