University of Toronto English Language Program Donates Course Material

The University of Toronto English Language Program has generously donated 149 books, 236 audio cassettes, and 105 video cassettes for use in our Iraq project! The material includes English for International Business, TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication), the MOSAIC and QUEST series, and other resources to aid students and teachers with reading, writing, listening, and pronunciation.

Book Wish will match the donation as carefully as possible with the needs in Iraq or other projects where students are trying to learn to read English, but lack quality instructional material. Almost every request we receive – from more than 20 countries throughout Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and South America – includes an English component. Learning to read English is a goal for many even in the most desperate crises, a source of hope for future prosperity and opportunities.

Thank you, University of Toronto English Language Program!
