Learning English? Cinco Ranch Branch Library Starts New ESL Pictionary Program  

Are you learning to speak English? Would you like some practice in a casual, informal atmosphere? Fort Bend County Libraries presents ESL (English as a Second Language) programs for individuals of all nationalities who would like a place to practice their English language and conversation skills.

Starting in February, the Cinco Ranch Branch Library will start a new monthly ESL Pictionary event. The first program will take place on Friday, February 15, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., in the Multi-purpose Room.

This educational game is a fun way for non-English-speaking students to develop a deeper understanding of the meaning of English words by conveying them through pictures. Participants divide into teams and take turns drawing their representation of a word and earning points by guessing the correct answer.

The next ESL Conversation Circle at the Cinco Ranch Branch Library will take place on Friday, February 22, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., in the Multi-purpose Room.

The Conversation Circles provide an opportunity for non-English-speaking people to gather in a relaxed setting, and discuss topics of their own choosing while practicing their English skills.

The programs are free and open to the public. For more information, call the Cinco Ranch Branch Library at 281-395-1311. The Cinco Ranch Branch Library is located at 2620 Commercial Center Blvd in Katy.
