Multnomah Bible College to Offer Free Community ESL Classes

11/15/2007

Multnomah Bible College is pleased to announce its first English as a Second Language (ESL) classes available to the entire community. Adult residents of the surrounding neighborhood and the greater Portland area are welcome to enroll in this class. It is designed to help people improve their English and develop the speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills necessary to be successful in the community and the workplace.

"These classes will be an excellent opportunity for speakers of other languages in our community to improve English language skills," said Kristen Hubert, professor of TESOL. "It will also be a source of vital, real-world experience for Multnomah's TESOL students."

Student-teachers from Multnomah's TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) Program will offer beginning and intermediate level ESL classes. The spring term begins on January 31 with classes held on Thursday nights. New students are welcome at any time during the term, but are encouraged to register on January 24, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Multnomah is offering the classes for free with a $5 charge for materials.

Classes will take place in Rooms L108, L109, and L110 of the Mitchell Library building on Multnomah's campus, located at 8435 Northeast Glisan Street, Portland, Oregon. For more information please contact Kristen Hubert at 503.251.6412 or khubert@multnomah.edu.
