English Classes (Students)
Volunteers with teaching experience in the field of ESL lead small classes during the fall and spring semesters for international students, scholars, and their relatives or friends.
Classes emphasize conversation and practical help on everyday living in America.
Students are placed according to their skill in English. A parent/child class is also offered for parents with children age 2 or younger.
All classes meet at the First Baptist Church, 518 N. Franklin Ave (behind Spirit Gas Station, 2801 University Avenue - use entrance closest to parking lot). The church allows the program to use its facility but there is no religious connection between the classes and the church.
These classes will be held during the academic year, 2013 – 2014:
|Type of Class||Meeting Times||Fee|
|Coversation Classes (4 different skill levels)||These meet two times each week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.||$60 per semester plus some classes have a textbook fee of $20.|
