2:00 pm: Learning English? Get Practice At Libraries’ Esl Conversation Circles
Are you learning to speak English? Would you like some practice in a casual, informal atmosphere? Fort Bend County Libraries presents a program for individuals of all nationalities who would like a place to practice their English language and conversation skills. The “ESL 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 ESL Conversation Circles will take place at multiple locations in the Fort Bend County library system in January. Reservations are NOT required. The schedule is as follows:
o Wednesdays, January 4, 11, 18, and 25, 2:00-3:00 pm, Meeting Room.
o Fridays, January 6, 13, and 20, 2:00-3:00 pm, Multi-purpose Room.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information, see the Fort Bend County Libraries website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us), or call the ESL/Adult Literacy Department at George Memorial Library (281-341-2652), the Cinco Ranch Branch Library (281-395-1311) or the Mission Bend Branch Library (832-471-5900).

2:00 pm: Mission Bend Branch Library Hosts Salsa Dance Class
Fort Bend County Libraries’ Mission Bend Branch Library will have an introductory “Salsa Dancing for Beginners”class on Saturday, January 28, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 8421 Addicks Clodine Road in northeast Fort Bend County.
Local dance instructors Loy and Bernardine Farmer will provide a basic introduction to the Salsa, an energetic partner-style of dance based on simple, repetitive movements. The instructors will demonstrate everything from basic steps and turns to cross-body leads.
Participants are requested to come as a dancing pair; solo participants cannot be paired with a partner. Because space is limited to 15 couples, registration is required. Participants should include their partner’s name when registering.
The series is free and open to the public. To register online at the library’s website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us), click on “Classes & Events,” select “Mission Bend Branch Library,” and find the program. Participants may also register by calling the library (832-471-5900) or by visiting the library.
