Bernardsville Public Library’s next session of English-As-A-Second-Language (ESL) classes will begin on Monday, January 19. Classes will be offered on Mondays and Thursdays at both 3:00 pm and 7:15 pm and will run for twelve sessions (through April 16). There is no charge to attend and students may attend classes in more than one timeslot if they wish.
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 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, and advance registration is optional. Just come to the first class. Registration can be accomplished online at www.bernardsvillelibrary.org; follow the link under Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up or for more information.
