Global Connections’ English Language Classes provide individuals with the opportunity to practice English speaking and listening skills in an informal classroom setting. Classes are offered weekly and are taught by experienced Global Connections volunteers. Levels range from beginner to advanced. All classes are intended for adult learners, unless otherwise noted. Older (teen) children may also benefit from the classes, but interested individuals should contact the teacher privately to see if they are willing to include younger students.

To register for an English Language Class, please first contact the instructor of your desired class to inquire if the class has openings for new students. You can find this information below. If the teacher invites you to join the class, you will be asked to fill out a registration form when you attend your first class.

Unless noted, all Global Connections English Language Classes are FREE and open to all. Classes are ongoing and participants can join at any time. If childcare is needed, contact us or the teacher to discuss possible arrangements. Please click “Download 2019 Schedule” below for class details including the teacher contact information.
