Making New York feel like home through free English classes
FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL:
We offer English for Speakers of Other Language (ESOL) classes at a variety of levels to adult immigrant students during the daytime, evenings, and weekends, free of charge. We have a strong track record of fully supporting adult immigrants through English language classes and counseling services.
We have developed a comprehensive program for immigrant students of all backgrounds, ensuring that any goal is achievable – whether it’s improving language skills, becoming more involved in their children’s education, advocating for themselves and their families, finding a job or training program, or applying for college.
Our goal is to help our students acquire the communication, technology, and life-long learning skills to fulfill their roles as family members, workers, and community members.
However, we are only accepting new students for these schedules and levels:
Mondays to Thursdays (4 days), 9 – 11am OR 11am– 1pm
Intermediate level and above levels of English
Saturdays to Sundays (2 days), from 9:30am – 12:30pm
Low advanced level English
Our classes started in September 2023. If you complete the interest form for these classes that are currently open for registration, you will be added to a class mid-year, and expected to study until the end of June 2024.

The evening class schedule and basic level classes are not open for registration. If you are only available for evening classes or need basic English classes, please check back on this page in mid-July 2024.
