Bernardsville Public Library’s next session of English-As-A-Second-Language (ESL) classes will begin on Monday, September 15. Classes will be offered on Mondays and Thursdays at both 3:00 pm and 7:15 pm and will run for ten sessions (through November 20). There is no charge to attend and students may sign up for more than one timeslot if they wish. Concurrent activities for children aged three and up are available during the evening sessions.
At the first session, students will be divided into small groups based on their native language and their facility with English. The classes will follow a variety of formats including lessons and practice, and conversation and role playing daily tasks that have to be executed in English. Trained community volunteers teach the classes. Community members who would like to volunteer as teachers are encouraged to call the library at 908-766-0118.
There is no charge to attend the program, but advance registration is requested. Registration is optional. Go to www.bernardsvillelibrary.org and follow the link under Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 for more information or to sign up.
