Thank Yous and Poetry with LELL

Hello everyone! Spring is finally here, and we have longer days to enjoy the weather. The longer days also provide us with the opportunity to fit a little extra learning into our day 😊

LELL started two new groups this month: News for You and a Conversation Circle.

News for You Class

Welcome to News for You! The Program offers easy-to-read news stories to help you learn English. They post seven new stories every Wednesday, complete with audio, exercises, vocabulary, puzzles, and a poll. Plus, do not miss their weekly News Roundup every Monday. Their articles are based on reports from The Associated Press and The Washington Post and are carefully reviewed for accuracy and readability by education professionals and editors.

Location: PALS
Days: Fridays
Time: 10:30-12:30 pm

 

Conversation Circle

These classes will provide a structured environment for language learners to practice speaking and listening skills, receive feedback, and engage in cultural exchange. They offer networking opportunities and help learners to boost their confidence. To provide our Learners with the best services we try our best to develop new courses and activities to give them all the chances to learn and grow.

Location: PALS
Days: Fridays
Time: 2:00-4:00 pm

If you are interested in registering for any of these classes, please reach out to me.

Feel free to share your favorite poem in your Language 😊

Here is mine:

जिंदगी का कोई भरोसा नहीं,
कभी खुशियों का समंदर, कभी घरों की गहराई,
कभी अनसुओं की बारिश, कभी मस्कुराहतों का रस,
कभी उदासी का समंदर, कभी खुशियों का किनारा।
 – हरिवंश राय बच्चन।

Translation:
Life holds no certainties,
Sometimes an ocean of joy, sometimes the depths of sorrow,
Sometimes a rainfall of tears, sometimes a thread of smiles,
Sometimes an ocean of melancholy, sometimes a shore of happiness.
 – Harivansh Rai Bachchan

  1. Hello,
    “For the love of poetry and being a poetess, I’d love to share with you one of my poem inspired by the fall season :)”

    Times reveals everything

    “People fall like leaves.
    My finger is on every bare branch.
    And I will not look away.
    I rise in moments of falling myself.”

    Bushra Mughal
