I'm affiliated with an organization, and I'm looking for ESOL classes for my clients/patients/employees/associates. How do I get started?

We are currently looking for new partners! Contact us at english.classes@awlci.org to discuss a partnership.

What if I have to miss a class?

Students who miss a class will receive class notes and materials. It is possible, but not guaranteed, that classes will be recorded or that you can review missed class material during a free tutoring session. The make-up class is only in case the instructor needs to cancel a class for any reason.

How do I know what is the best course for me?

A placement interview conducted over the phone or video conference will determine what course is the best fit for you.

Do we have to do any work outside of class?

Do I need to purchase any books or materials?

All materials will be provided by the instructors.
