The New York Public Library (NYPL) regularly hosts free online and in-person English classes for adults (18+). In particular, courses are offered in ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), Basic English and English for Professionals (these are ESOL classes with an emphasis on vocabulary needed to get a job or do business in the US).

What you need to know about English courses from the library:

1. Only residents of the city or state of New York can study on them (the person must live, work or study in the region). Even if the course is online, you need to visit the library to register for it.

2. This course is for adults only (18 years and older).

3. Classes are held completely free of charge.

4. Course duration - 6 months. Classes are usually twice a week for 2-3 hours or once a week for 5 hours. The classes you will attend will be suggested based on your level of English proficiency, which will be determined through a short test.

5. If you want to take an ESOL course, then you need to register. To do this, you need to come to the library. The list of library addresses and times when registration is open is below.

6.If you have additional questions, or you are late for registration and want to know about future dates, then this can be done by e-mail: [email protected]. In a letter MANDATORY you need to indicate your preferences regarding the format and area in which you would like to practice (there are NO classes in Brooklyn and Queens).
