  • All classes are free!   

    We offer classes for adults whose first language is not English. Students in beginning classes learn to speak, listen for understanding, read, and write English. Intermediate and advanced students have the opportunity to improve conversation, grammar, pronunciation, reading, and writing.

    Other classes include:

    • U.S. Government and History
    • Citizenship
    • TOEFL
