We are excited to offer affordable English classes for internationals of all ages. Classes meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays and each class lasts 90 minutes. The 10:00am class offers child care for a small additional fee.   If you visit, you'll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, a classroom where you can feel comfortable and encouraged.  These classes emphasize conversations so you will be able to use what you learn right away!

English and American Traditions

Monday and Wednesday from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.


Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. 

Students will learn English and American culture:  With every activity, we will follow with a vocabulary lesson and practice conversation about the experience.  In the spring, we go on a hike, name the spring flowers, make Valentine cards and heart shaped cookies.  In summer we picnic in the Peony Garden, pick strawberries and make a strawberry dessert, and visit the art fair. In fall we visit Plymouth Orchard and compare/contrast different MI apples, collect/analyze fall leaves, and carve pumpkins for Halloween.  In winter we sing favorite American Christmas songs; watch popular Christmas movies, listen to the famous "I HAVE A DREAM" speech for Martin Luther King Day, and visit the Toledo Museum of Art.


English Conversation

Tuesday and Thursday

7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

This class will use two texts, A Conversation Book, English in Everyday Life and Speak English Like an American. Students will practice their speaking and listening skills in a variety of engaging ways. Once a month, students will be paired with an American partner for 'English Conversation Night.
