English for Successful Living at Holy Innocents Church


LaAmistad English for Successful Living offers English classes to anyone whose first language is not English and who has no language proficiency or limited proficiency in English. Classes are taught by volunteers who receive training in ESL strategies and practices. Students are placed in classes based on their language proficiency level. To obtain this level, a placement test is administered at registration. Textbooks are used in all classes. The first part of the lesson is offered on Tuesday and the second part is offered on Thursday. Saturday classes cover both lessons introduced during the week. Students may register for individual classes or attend both classes during the week or just join the Saturday classes. Classes during the Fall and Winter session are 12 weeks. Summer classes are usually 8 weeks.
