ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages)

A collage of classroom images from the ESOL program and pictures of individual students.

We offer free English classes for adult immigrants who live in the New York City area. There are 6 levels, ranging from Beginning Literacy to Advanced. We also offer conversation classes for those students enrolled in levels 4, 5, or 6. All of our classes are held at sites in Harlem and other neighborhoods near the Columbia University campus. Each year we offer three 12-week cycles:

·        Fall (September-December)

·        Spring (January-May)

·        Summer (June-August)
