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 between $10 and $40, 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, please do not bring children with you to registration.  We want you to be able to focus on the placement test.
  • At most locations, classes do not begin the day of registration.

We look forward to welcoming you at your first class!
