News Verbal welcomes students and staff from Virginian university Here at Verbal we really appreciate hosting international visitors: this morning we were delighted to welcome students and staff from the School of Communication Studies, James Madison University, Virginia. We discussed the Reading Rooms model and read an extract from Paul McVeigh’s wonderful novel ‘The Good Son’. Speaking with groups from different places about the work we do helps us see our programmes from different perspectives and further refine what we stand for. We therefore relish every opportunity we get. Thank you Carlos Galvan Alemán, Melissa Alemán and all the group for engaging at such a deep level and asking many wonderful questions.
