Beginner English Classes

Program Overview

English At Large offers free Beginner English classes at two locations in our service area.  Instruction focuses on basic survival English skills:  greetings and introductions, people in the family, places in the home and community, numbers, time, money, and everyday activities.

Classes follow a 12-week fall and spring academic year schedule. We currently offer classes in two communities in our service area, with plans to expand to other, high-need communities in the near future.

Classes are 90-minutes long and meet on two weekdays each week, providing a total of 36 hours of instruction per semester.  Classes are taught by a team of English At Large volunteer teachers.

 

Beginner English Class at Tufts University in Medford
(October to April schedule)

The Medford class is offered through a partnership with Tufts ESL and English At Large, to serve learners from Medford and neighboring communities.  Classes are taught by a team of Tufts student volunteers, and follow the Tufts University academic year calendar.

 

Beginner English Class at Acton Memorial Library in Acton
(January to December schedule)

The Acton class serves Beginner learners in Acton and neighboring communities.  Classes are held at Acton Memorial Library, and taught by a team of English At Large volunteer teachers.

The Acton class runs from January – December 2024.
After a summer break, the class continues in September.
