English Classes

We connect newly arrived refugees and refugees who have been living in the United States for less than 5 years to varying levels of ESL instruction in the Triangle area.

We provide both Beginner Level English classes and Intermediate Level English classes, and we refer individuals to additional ESL community resources like Durham Tech and the Durham Literacy Center as well.

Please visit our online calendar to view our ESL class schedule. We offer four class sections per week taught by staff members, and additional classes developed and led by volunteers. Thanks so much to our generous community partners who offer donated space to host these classes!
