ESL To Go: Nashville’s First ESL Mobile Classroom

By Filmore Ha (Ibaraki-ken, 2006-08).  Filmore continues to live and work in the Greater Tokyo Area as an FAE and is also webmaster for JETAA Tokyo.  He is actively seeking new opportunities in the U.S. or Canada.

Thanks to Terry Vo, JET Program and MEXT Coordinator in Nashville, for sharing this awesome initiative by JET alum Leah Hashinger at the Tennessee Foreign Language Institute.

ESL To Go is Nashville’s first ESL mobile classroom. ESL To Go is a community-driven project designed to take English classes to refugees in the communities where they live. They are currently trying to raise $25,000 in order to purchase the ESL To Go truck which will enable them to provide mobile English lessons to refugees that are unable to attend ESL class due to lack of suitable transportation.


Sounds like a fantastic idea to me! You can learn more about the project and make a contribution to this fantastic idea from their project page over at CrowdRise.
