English as a Second Language (ESL)

"One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way."Frank Smith

If you need to improve your English speaking and writing skills, want to be able to help your children with their homework or talk to their teachers, or want better English skills for your job, ETLC can help!

Instruction is FREE and offered on multiple days at multiple times and locations (day and night classes available). Childcare is available at all classes for a small fee. We welcome all nationalities and levels, even if you don’t speak any English at all!

ESL classes run September – December and January -May, with Citizenship classes in June and July. Once you reach the appropriate level, instructors will recommend fun “conversational English” classes offered at the ETLC office so you can continue to practice.
