What is ESL?

Covenant Presbyterian Church of Fort Smith now offers Conversational English Classes as part of our English Second Language (ESL) program.  All classes are FREE of charge to anyone who wants to learn to speak better English.

When do classes begin?

The fall semester of classes begin September 11th, 2017.  Class times will be on Monday evenings from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.  Students may enroll throughout the semester on any Monday.

Do you know some English already?

Classes will be split up into three levels of English-speaking proficiency:

  • Beginners class - For those who speak little or no English.
  • Intermediate class  - For those who know just enough English to "get by".
  • Advanced class - For those who want to improve their pronunciation and accent and to feel more comfortable conversing at work, at school, and in the community.

More Information

All classes are FREE! Students will be asked to purchase a textbook costing $20.

You are welcome to join us on Sundays at 11 a.m. to learn about the Bible as you practice your English. All teachers are unpaid volunteers who want to help you learn to speak better English.
