Free English Classes
To join an English class, all new students must first come to an information session. For more details, see the information session dates and the flyer (PDF) below.
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 English reading and writing skills.
