Basic Skills ESOL provides introductory instruction in reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills in English. These classes are a good place to start if:

  • You have not taken an English class in the United States before.
  • You are new to the country.
  • You need to improve your English for everyday life (for example going shopping, asking questions at work or the doctor’s office, or talking to your child’s teacher).


These FREE English classes are funded through a grant. Contact us anytime to get more information and to make an appointment for assessments. Assessments for reading and listening tell us which level of class will be right for you.
