WHO:
Eleven students in the English as a Second Language (ESL) program at
Rowan University's Camden campus

WHAT:
will present information about their native lands to kindergarten through
ninth grade students

WHEN:
on Wednesday, April 19, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

WHERE:
at the Oaklyn Public School, Kendall Boulevard.

DETAILS:
The Rowan University students, who come from Colombia, Korea, Kosovo,
Mali, Mongolia, Senegal and Turkey, have already visited the school a few
times. The purpose of their visits is two-fold: they teach the children
about the countries from which they come and they have the opportunity
to practice their English skills and to interact with Americans. (The Rowan
University students are primarily foreign study students who will return
to their native lands after studying here.)

(NOTE: The ESL program also is hosting Sergey Dolgikh, president of a
language school in the Republic of Kazakstan in the former Soviet
Republic, through the International Visitors Council of Philadelphia until
April 20. Dolgikh is studying the Rowan University curriculum and
observing how the ESL program operates.)
