Sister Jeanne Marie Vonder Haar of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, director of education services for Apostle Immigrant Services in New Haven chats on July 8 with adult students at an English Conversation Circle that she hosts on Tuesday evenings from June through August at the agency in New Haven.

Sister Jeanne estimates that 30 to 40 people have attended the informal gatherings, which are designed to help adults “practice English and become confident in themselves in a non-threatening atmosphere."

Topics discussed include the weather, visits to the doctor, housework, idiomatic expressions, getting an apartment or house, handling money and documents, sports, dining and shopping.
