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.
All students must have an active membership to register and participate in our ESL classes (Adult Memberships are $70 per year). For more information on our memberships, please see our membership page.
Members who have a child enrolled in the Summit Public School System may pay only $10 per session to enroll in ESL classes, with no class limit. An active membership is still required.
