English Language Learner Support Services:

  • Everyday English classes are offered 1-3 on Tuesdays
  • English Language Learning and Citizenship Prep 7-9 on Tuesdays
  • Conversation CafĂ© Wednesdays 4-5:30 – the entire community is invited, as we are trying to foster relationships between our ESL learners and other community members to create mentor relationships and a sense of belonging.
  • Tutoring – we have several volunteer tutors from the community who provide one-on-one instruction in English and also build relationships with the learners to help them feel at home in the community.

Community Challenges:

Many of our learners work several jobs, and therefore it is difficult for them to find time for language learning.

Community Support:

We have partnered with the Valleyview Municipal Library and Northern Lakes college to provide support to the ELL learners in our community. Both organizations provide free space for us to hold classes and training sessions.
