What do our Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) students and our English as a Second Language (ESL) students have in common? They are applying the knowledge they gain to hands-on scenarios. Last week, our ESL students were the “patients,” which gave our PTA students the opportunity to practice what they’ve learned on people other than each other.
The ESL students had the chance to practice their English language skills with students outside of their class. It was a chance to encourage greater cultural understanding between the two classes and make some new connections. New PTA and ESL classes start in September.
