The University Settlement Adult Literacy Program welcomes our new English Conversation Partner, Alison. She’s going to be calling our students on a regular basis and helping them with their listening and speaking skills. Alison also works at University Settlement’s Houston Street Center. Now let’s hear from Alison herself:
I’m from New York and love living in Astoria, Queens. I’ve worked at University Settlement for 14 years! My favorite thing about my job is meeting the people who come to the Houston Street Center to learn new skills and achieve their goals. When I’m not at work, I enjoy working out, going to concerts & sporting events and spending time with my friends and family. My favorite color is blue and I love Beyonce. I also love the summer time because I love hot weather and going to the beach. I’m very outgoing and social and love meeting new people – so the new role of “Conversation Partner” is really exciting for me. Thank you for practicing your English with me!
