ESL (English as a Second Language) at EBIC

Immigrants and refugees in the United States are confronted with the challenges of living in a new culture. Adjustment to a new country and culture is especially difficult for adults who have limited knowledge of English.

The ESL Ministry at EBIC offers English classes at several levels of proficiency to adults learning English as a new, second, or other language. Classes will help to prepare adults to function in English in the community as students, workers, parents, and citizens.

Classes range from Introduction to Literacy through Advanced/Pre-GED. All new students receive placement testing and interviews to help determine grade level.  Classes serve not only as a place to learn English and to get acquainted with others, but also, throughout this process, to learn and discuss about health, work, shopping, how to access educational opportunities, community services, etc.
