Our English Language Classes (ESL) are focused on helping non-native English speaking adults improve their reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension skills in order to improve their workplace communication skills, get a new job, prepare to take job training or college class, and become more active in the community.
We currently serve students from five different continents and 29 countries. With so many different languages spoken, we use English language immersion techniques to teach life and work skills that help our students gain confidence and use their English skills in their everyday lives.For non-native English speakers who have lived in the United States for many years and speak and understand English well, we offer reading and writing courses in our Adult Basic Education Program.Classes are open to all community members 17+. We also offer a variety of services in addition to our adult ESL classes.
AFE offers ESL, Language Arts, and Math class at no cost to students referred by Lutheran Refugee Services for up to 5 years after entering the United States. Referred students must attend a registration and inform us that you are registered with LRS.For more information on any of our services, please call 328-3001.
