English as a Second Language (ESL)

For adults living in southwest Idaho we offer free classes to learn or improve English.  English as a Second Language (ESL) Classes meet 4-6 hours per week and are offered at 6 different levels.  In class you will practice speaking and listening to English and learn the basics of reading and writing that you need to live and work in the United States.  All ESL students must attend class for at least 70 hours, which usually takes 5 months.  You can choose classes from various locations in Nampa or in Boise.  To find out more about ESL and to register, please attend an ESL information session.
