Free English Classes
To join an English class, all new students must first come to an information session. See dates below. For more details, see our flyer (PDF).
We offer two types of classes:
- ESOL - Listening and Speaking
ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes are for people who want to learn and improve their English. These classes focus on speaking and listening skills. Some reading and writing practice is included.
- ABE - Reading and Writing
ABE (Adult Basic Education) classes are for people who speak English, but need help with their Enlgish reading and writing skills.
SPRING 2015 Information Sessions for new students will take place in April 2015.
Dates and locations will be posted in March.
