ELL Program

ELL Program

St. Francis House ELL Program began with 8 students in March 2001.  Since that small beginning, an average of 50 students are taught by volunteer teachers and aides every quarter.

Learning to speak and understand English enables Hispanic adults to improve their employment status and to successfully assimilate into this country.  Learning levels range from beginners to intermediate.

If you are a retired teacher with adult basic education training and would like to share your time and talent, please contact Sister Pat at (253) 770-6991 about our current opportunities.
