Are you looking for a way to practice your English reading and conversation skills for FREE this summer?

ALI is offering a Summer Book Club program for current USC international students, from June 17-July 22. During this 6-week program, participants will read J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and will attend online weekly discussion groups led by ALI Conversation Leaders, Samantha Jungheim and Natalie Grace Sipula.

Participants will need to own or have access to the book (ISBN: 0-590-35342-X) before the first session on June 17th so that they can read the appropriate sections according to the timeline below:
