Program Overview

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 60 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. Beginner through advance classes available: September – June

Cost Info

Cost is $52 for 10 weeks of a 2-hour class. Classes are held 4 mornings per week and on Monday evenings. Scholarship assistance is available for students unable to pay the fee.
