United in Christ, the Calvary family is exceptionally diverse, representing more than 40 countries and dozens of language groups.
No matter your background or language, we invite you to join us to worship our great God and grow and serve alongside brothers and sisters in Christ.
Calvary ESL (English as a Second Language) classes help internationals learn to speak English and understand American cultural expressions.
We offer multiple proficiency levels plus pronunciation and discussion groups to improve vocabulary and conversational skills. New students take a placement test to determine their class level.
ESL classes are offered on Monday and Thursday mornings in three semesters: Fall (September), Winter (January), and Spring (March). Please see the current schedule below. Childcare is not provided.
The cost is $55 per semester, including books and materials.
Classes for the Fall Semester are FULL. Registration for the Winter Semester will open in December.
