Language Tutors Needed

The Johns Hopkins International Society is expanding its language tutoring program to provide not only a list of English tutors but of tutors for other languages, as well. The program is informal, less a teacher-student arrangement and more an exchange between tutor and student. Tutors are needed who can speak any language and would like to help, on a one-to-one basis, intermediate learners improve their language skills and/or teach new students. JHIS will be the point of contact.

To volunteer, contact Erin McAlister, the JHIS coordinator, at Provide name, contact information, home country, language(s) the volunteer would like to tutor, times available and the levels offered (beginner, intermediate or advanced).


Potluck Lunches for International Spouses

The Johns Hopkins International Society hosts a monthly potluck lunch designed for spouses of Hopkins' international affiliates to meet others in the area. Children are welcome. Each person brings a dish to share with everyone. It can be a main dish, appetizer, dessert or snack. It is not necessary to bring a homemade dish, though many people do.

The lunches take place on the First Tuesday of each month, unless there is a holiday or related event on the Monday before the first Tuesday.

The next lunch is March 1, from 12:30 to 2:15 p.m. in the Reed Hall small conference room. For more information, e-mail
