Hello friends--a quick announcement to let you know about International Talk Time, a wonderful outreach to international students from Whatcom Community College that YOU can be involved in.
Talk Time is a relationship-building time in which native English speakers get together to share a meal, play games and chat with international students from all over the world. It's been popular among the students (averaging 30-40 students each week) and is a fantastic way to learn about culture and build bridges with students from cultures and backgrounds vastly different from ours.
Although it's hosted by Campus Christian Fellowship, there are a number of folks from BCC involved. We meet once every other week (Fridays from 5-7 PM) near Whatcom's campus. Feel free to show up and check it out--no commitment required and no strings attached (though fair warning: You might get hooked after just one meeting).
If you're the type who enjoys cooking for large groups, we always need people to prepare meals. Contact Steven (link below) if you'd like to get involved.
