Free Survival English (ESL) Classes for Adults at Vineland Public Library

Survival ESL (English as a Second Language) classes are being held at Vineland Public Library, 1058 E. Landis Avenue. The classes target individuals whose low English level prevents them from interacting with English speakers in their daily lives. The classes will focus on vocabulary for daily life and the basic grammar patterns of English.

Classes for beginning students will take place every Monday and Friday from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. Classes for intermediate students will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:30– 11:30 a.m. All classes are free and open to residents of Vineland, Millville or Bridgeton (Vineland residents will have priority) who are at least 18 years old and grew up speaking any language other than English. Classes will meet in the library’s Community Event Room, which is located on the first floor of the library. Enrollment is ongoing. Interested students must bring their library card with them to register, and a notebook and pencil to use in the class.

All individuals needing ESL or citizenship instruction should register at the library’s Information Desk on the first floor. Those registered will be called as tutors become available.
