Photo Essay: Colvin makes language learning fun
Victoria Bangs provides a visual learning experience for beginning English students. Most of the students speak Spanish but Bangs doesn’t allow it to be spoken in her class, in an effort to get as much English practice as possible. One of the best ways for beginner students to connect a meaning with a vocabulary word is by acting it out or using pictures. There are three levels of English offered at the Colvin Adult Learning Center — basic, intermediate and advanced.

itting slightly off Kansas Avenue in Liberal, the Colvin Adult Learning Center is easy to miss. The plain white building has no distinguishing features to draw the attention of those passing by. It doesn’t need it though, the magic happens inside.
Students come from Liberal and surrounding communities for adult basic education needs. Most attend for the English as a Second Language course. Laughter is the glue that holds the Seward County Community College annex campus together. It echoes throughout the halls and mixes with the phonetic sounds of the ABCs. Smiles abound, as encouragement is freely given by instructors and students.
