On this blog, there is a MENU item called CLASSES, that contains a link to a list of English classes offered in this area. This includes:

  • Formal 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 – these are free and informal.  They usually meet once a week for a few hours, and you attend when you can.

In this long posting, we’ll give you an update on formal classes offered in MetroWest.
