Letter: A huge help for English learning

We’d like to give a big thanks to Aspen Skiing Co. and the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies for making possible English in Action’s sixth annual snowshoe tour. On a sunny afternoon in March, a group of English in Action students and volunteer tutors were treated to a fun, informative snowshoe tour atop Aspen Mountain led by terrific guides from the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies, Phebe and Kinsey. Afterward, the group enjoyed lunch at the Sundeck. It was a great opportunity for students and tutors to spend time together.

English in Action’s mission is to strengthen the quality of life for everyone in our community by helping adults learn to read, write and speak English and by building cross-cultural relationships. The organization, which started 20 years ago, accomplishes these goals through one-on-one tutoring, weekly drop-in classes and workshops.

Thanks again to Skico and the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies for their generosity.

Cecilia Garcia and Elizabeth Nix
