English Classes (ESL)

College Students in Classroom

MAM’s adult English as a Second Language (ESL) courses are for people who want to speak and understand English better.  Non-native English speakers will be empowered to go to work and participate in their children’s education and our community.

There are six instructional levels, from Foundations for Beginners to Advanced Conversation. Currently, all classes are provided virtually, but more than six sites are used when in-person classes are available.

Student fees: $30 per semester; all learning materials are provided at no cost to the student.

Other details: MAM classes feature ‘small groups’ that promote a sense of team, personal connections and conversation; community volunteers are our teachers.
