Our English Classes

Our adult ESL classes meet on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10am–12pm, but our Spring 2024 registrations are over and classes are full. Scroll down for a list of other ESL classes in the area, or check back in August for fall registration!

REGISTRATION

Registration was completed in early January and we are full for the spring semester (until May). The next chance to enter our classes will be in August 2024; check this website in the summer for details.

Registration was completed in early January and we are full for the spring semester (until May). Regular registrations during August and early January are when our team is devoted to registration. Now our team is devoted to teaching our classes, so we have exceedingly limited personnel to administer placement tests. It is even possible you may be turned away on any given day and asked to return a different day to test, as we can only administer a limited number of placement tests per day with limited personnel. If you test into a level that is full, you will be placed on a waitlist.

REGISTRATION

Since class already started, you will have to register on your first day. The cost is still the same, since our teachers are volunteers. You are paying for your curriculum (books), not your teacher!

COST

The cost (fees) for a semester is $50. If your family can’t afford the fees, come to registration in August anyway and talk to us about your situation. Our teachers are volunteers, so you are paying for your curriculum (books), not your teacher! Please bring your fees to registration day. We can only accept cash.

CHILDCARE

We have a nursery and toddler playroom for small children, but our kids’ program is full. Potential students with small children will be placed on the waitlist. This will give them the first chance to get their children into our childcare in the Fall.

DETAILS

We have eight classes: Three levels of phonics for women, four levels for women who can read, and one class for men separately. We would like to hold another men’s class as our men’s waitlist is long, so please email us if you are a Christian male interested in volunteer teaching! We are a Christian organization, so we include a story each day from the Holy Bible (Taurat, Zabur or Injil-e Sharif) in our classes. We learn the English vocabulary and discuss how these stories have impacted American culture. Most are stories Catholics and Muslims usually already know. Many are told in both the Holy Bible and Qur’an.

LOCATION & PARKING: Our classes meet at New City Fellowship Church downtown (200 Prince Edward Street, Fredericksburg, VA, 22401). Don’t park on the street; the police might give you a ticket! The parking lot is behind the church building. The entrance is on Dunmore Street near the HeadStart preschool (Walker-Grant Center). To enter the parking lot, drive west on Dunmore Street to the intersection of Dunmore Street and Ferdinand Street. Keep going and look for the unlocked yellow gate on your right. At the gate, turn right into the parking lot. For details, visit the parking page. If you have a question, you can call us at 540.300.1334. We are sorry that we can take questions in English only.
