General ESL Classes
We offer several basic conversational English classes throughout the week. Classes are offered at 5 different levels during every session. We offer morning classes, but our largest classes for both men and women are offered on Thursday Evenings. You will be helped to find the skill level class that is correct for you.
The Test of English as a Foreign Language is a test anyone from a non-English speaking nation must pass in order to attend University in the USA. We offer Preparation classes on Wednesday evenings.
On Mondays, CrossPoint ESL students and some staff can gather at Panera Bread (next to TJ Maxx store) for casual conversation and social English. Students choose the topics and anyone can join in.
This class runs about 15 weeks and covers the 100 Questions need for passing the Citizenship Test. It also practices the writing & reading portions as well as assisting students to prepare for the citizenship interview.
