In 1945 The Connection began an English as a Second Language program to serve the influx of newcomers to our country after WWII. The need for this program is as significant now as it was 75 years ago. Today, Connection volunteers are teaching English and providing valuable support services to students from 22 different countries.
ESL is designed to help non-native speakers improve their conversation skills, increase vocabulary, learn idioms and explore U.S. culture. We offer small, friendly classes in a supportive environment to help students achieve their goals. Basic reading in native language is recommended.
Full and Partial Scholarships are available for all classes and activities at The Connection, including English as a Second Language.
Beginner through advanced classes available: September – June
We are currently offering virtual classes on Zoom at a variety of days and times.
