English Classes

Village ESOL offers online language classes to engage and connect the multicultural groups in our community. As one of the most diverse areas in the state, Washington County is home to immigrants, refugees, temporary professionals, migrant workers, spouses of visiting scholars and many more. All are welcome at Village ESOL to practice English and share their cultures. Our vision is dedicated to active outreach through educational activities focused on language development and cultural understanding. These activities help learners and volunteers realize their God-given potential as uniquely gifted individuals.
