English as a Second Language

Registration Has Closed

ESL classes (English as a Second Language) for beginners to advanced students are held on Monday nights in the Education Building from 7-9 pm. Students learn to use English in the workplace and in their daily life.

Classes will be held on Monday evenings from January 8 until April 29. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes are offered. Download the full calendar here.

In addition to English classes, there is a Citizenship Class to prepare students to become US citizens. The church will provide free childcare during classes, and the sessions include a break time when all students can free “shopping” in the church’s “Clothes Closet.”
