English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Classes 

Most of our ESOL classes are women-only in order to provide a culturally sensitive learning environment in which students can feel most comfortable. Mixed gender classes are also available. The classes focus on many aspects of learning English, and cater to the needs of our students, varyng from basic literacy to forms of professional language and conversation practice. Emphasis is placed on self-efficacy and language for day-to-day interactions. Classes run from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm Monday-Thursday. All of our classes are held at the Beit al-Maqdis Islamic Center (6206 6th Ave) 

We currently offer the following levels of ESOL: 

  • Literacy 1 & 2 
  • Beginner 1 & 2
  • Intermediate 
  • Conversation
  • Advanced
