Can you spare two to four hours a week for six weeks during the school term? Then we need your help The Culture Company Reading4U offers the Repeat Read Aloud Programme for Adults and is seeking volunteers for New Lynn Library, Ranui Library and Massey Library. The programme is offered free for adults wanting to improve their English language. Help nurture mutual cultural understanding in our communities. This is a very popular programme with many people on the waiting lists. For more information contact Wendy (For New Lynn Library) on 817 6076 Dan (For Massey Library) on 818 7593 Kiran (for Ranui library) on 833 5861 Read-Aloud skill a boost for migrant By NICOLA MURPHY Speak out: Barry Zhang feels far more confident speaking English thanks to a read aloud programme he attended at the New Lynn library. Photo: NICOLA MURPHY Chinese-born Barry Zhang had difficulty speaking to Kiwis when he first moved to New Zealand. He doesn't have that prob- lem now thanks to a reading aloud programme he attended at New Lynn library. The Repeat Read Aloud programme is being offered again this year at New Lynn, Ranui, Waitakere Central and Massey libraries. It runs for six weeks over the school term with the next one starting in early February. Mr Zhang participated in the free programme last year. Writing and reading was okay but speaking was diffi- cult,'' he says. He now feels far more con- fident speaking English. New Lynn programme co- ordinator Wendy Wilton says the initiative is for adults wanting to improve their English skills. They are always looking for more volunteers to help run the project. This requires around two to four hours a week for the six weeks. We can never have enough volunteers,'' she says. You don't have to be a teacher or a tutor to help out.'' Mrs Wilton says the pro- gramme is not based on edu- cation but about helping new immigrants integrate into New Zealand society. It involves reading simple books aloud, having conversations and playing word games like charades. Call 817-6076 for more information.
