The Robert McDougal English Language Institute, in Costa Mesa, California, will host a Halloween party and book giveaway on Saturday, Oct. 26 and Sunday, Oct. 27, 2019.
The institute, which opened just a few short months ago, is already beloved by locals. The institute, run by well-known ESL/ELL instructor Robert Bouton McDougal, specializes in teaching English to non-native English speakers of all ages.
The Halloween parties on Saturday and Sunday will begin at 1 p.m. Participants of all ages are welcome and are encouraged to wear costumes. Trick-or-treating begins at 1:30, and spooky entertainment and delicious drinks and refreshments will be provided. There will also be Halloween-themed games for little ones, a costume contest, and a major book giveaway. Each partygoer can pick two free books from the onsite Robert McDougal Little Library to take home with them permanently.
In addition, there will be an inexpensive raffle for a free week of English language instruction at the Robert McDougal English Language Institute.
“We want to be integrated into the community as much as possible,” Robert Bouton McDougal shared. “We hope to produce many more free holiday events and giveaways in the future that everyone in the area can enjoy, no matter their background or income. We especially want to emphasize the joy and importance of reading, so all of our events will incorporate free educational materials and books for kids and older readers as well.”
