ESL Beginner Classes

9:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Bethpage Public Library
Auditorium & Side Platform
The library will once again be offering ESL classes for people who want to learn English. Since September 2015, we have been sponsoring the NYSIgN ESL/Citizenship Program. Participants with little or no command of English are tutored in a warm, welcoming atmosphere, by experienced teachers. When their language skills are sufficiently improved, they can begin study with the goal of obtaining American citizenship.

New sessions will begin on Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019, from 9:30 to 11:30AM.

Register in person or by phone at the Reference Desk. The registration for the class is ongoing. Students may join at any time; the teachers will evaluate each one and place them appropriately within the class. The participant’s native language does not matter! We only ask that they bring a pen or pencil and paper, and a willingness and desire to learn. There is no fee.

Our librarians will be pleased to answer any questions you may have. Please call the Reference Desk for further information.
