From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.
— Acts 17:26-27


We offer English as a Second Language (ESL) classes throughout the year at Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced levels. Classes are led by trained volunteers who are excited to meet you and help you learn.  Anyone who would like to learn English is welcome!

  • Beginner - For those who speak little to no English.

  • Intermediate - For those who know just enough English to "get by."

  • Advanced - For those who want to improve their pronunciation and accent and to feel more comfortable conversing at work, at school, and in the community.

In both the Fall and Spring semesters classes will run with the Knox County School Calendar.

Student workbooks are available and are $10 per workbook, these are optional. In addition to the workbook an interactive English CD is available for $2. 

All classes are free!
