Free English School
The Free English School is a student-centered language program for queer and trans non-native English speakers. Classes are led by Terran, a trans collective member at Lupinewood with 13 years experience teaching and coordinating programming for immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers in his community.
The program is for beginner through advanced learners and tailored to each student’s needs, interests, goals and dreams. The curriculum is co-created between student and teacher and based on the content of the student’s life and current priorities: students practice the past tense while processing a break up or conjugate verbs while describing a drag show; whatever the student chooses to bring to class becomes the lesson. Starting from class #1, even for the most beginner-level students, classes are driven by the student.
