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, varying from basic literacy to forms of professional language and conversation practice. Emphasis is placed on self-efficacy and language for day-to-day interactions.

We currently offer multiple levels of ESOL in addition to other classes, some of which are new this year, including:

Literacy 1 & 2 | Beginner | Intermediate | Conversation

Students are required to register for open spaces in the class. A placement exam is administered to each incoming student. Please email Susannah Gund at Susannah@ArabAmericanNY.org or call the Association for more information.
