How do I register to take English classes?

  • Go to the location at the day and time indicated for registration. Registration takes no more than two hours, and often takes less than an hour.
  • Bring with you: your registration fee, a pencil, your mailing address, and your phone numbers. The registration fee for one semester of classes and books is usually no more than $50 (including books), depending on the location. Payment must be made in cash (no checks or credit cards).
  • Be prepared to take a placement test to determine your level of English skill. You will be asked to listen, speak, read, and write in English.
  • Do not worry about this test! There is no pass or fail. We use this information to place you in a beginning, intermediate, or advanced level class where you will be best served.
  • If possible, it would be best if you did not bring children with you to registration.  We want you to be able to focus on the placement test. But if you have to bring your children, that’s okay too.
  • At most locations, classes do not begin the day of registration.

We look forward to welcoming you at your first class!
