English as a Second Language (ESL) Classes
Do you need help learning English? This virtual program is intended for adult learners living in the Chathams and elsewhere in New Jersey to improve their English language skills, and to help them work and fully participate in the life of their communities. The program is free and taught by experienced volunteer teachers via Zoom.
The ESL program at the library is funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the New Jersey State Library.
The next session of ESL classes will start the week of September 19, 2022. Check back on this page soon for the fall schedule. Subscribe to the ESL mailing list below to be notified of upcoming classes.
