More Information:

  • Formal ESL Classes – some are free, some have a cost, where you are registered, and attend classes usually once or twice each week for many weeks.
  • Conversation Groups – most are free and informal.  They usually meet once a week for a few hours, and you attend when you can.
  • Tutors and special instruction – A tutor is a teacher who works with just one student, or maybe two.  Working with an English tutor can be a good way to improve your English more quickly, because you get to speak more, and work more on the kind of English help that you need.  There are also some private schools that offer help preparing for the citizenship test or green card interview, and special instruction for topics such as business English or accent reduction.
