The English Skills Learning Center provides individualized English instruction to adult refugees and immigrants who cannot attend traditional ESL classes for a number of reasons. The students are currently from 40 different countries and speak little or no English. Often they are not literate in any language.
Volunteers are trained and supervised and teach students twice a week. Instruction is provided at times and locations that are convenient for both the volunteer and the student.
The English Skills Learning Center has operated continuously since 1988, and provides the only free and individualized ESL tutoring program in Salt Lake County.
