English Conversation Classes (Intermediate Level)  

WINTER 2016:   NO REGISTRATION!  JUST COME TO ANY CLASS!  (Fliers coming soon.)

We Are New York  is an Emmy Award-winning half hour TV show created to help Adults practice English.  Each story is about everyday situations, like going to the doctor or talking to your child's teacher.  The characters speak slowly and clearly.

Intermediate Level English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) learners will have the opportunity to learn English by watching We Are New York videos and talking about them.  Come to the library and meet other people who are practicing English, just like you.

This program works best for people who speak some English already and want to practice.  For more information, call or visit the branches listed below.

We Are New York was created by the New York  City Mayor’s Office of Adult Education and the City University of New York.
