The Hailey Public Library’s Conversacion de Ingles will resume on Friday, Jan. 13.

The free class will be taught by Leonardo Padilla Sacha from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Hailey Town Center West.

It’s designed for native Spanish speakers of all abilities in a structured but informal atmosphere. Native English speakers are also on hand to assist.

Drop-ins are welcome.

The library is also offering a new Ingles tutorial, a new weekly language learning program from 5 to 6 p.m. every Friday, also at Hailey town Center West. The class is being offered at people’s request.

Tutoria offers free one-on-one tutoring or small-group tutoring with native English speakers. Participants can ask to target a specific problem, such as practicing numbers, or they can practice conversational speaking. Drop-ins are welcome.

“We’ve been delighted by the response to the Conversacion de Inglés classes over the past nine months,” said Kristin Fletcher, the library’s programs and engagement manager. “It really meets a need in our community.  Many participants asked if we could also provide additional opportunities for them to practice their English one-on-one or with a small group of friends. So, starting this Friday we’ve added Inglés Tutoría, a free, hour-long tutoring opportunity before the regular class. Folks can come for either one or both.”
