Classes are held from 7-9 pm Mondays at Trinity Church. Trained teachers and tutors lead each of the different levels of classes offered. Oral and/or written tests are given to students to determine their appropriate level. The Bible is used as a reading or discussion reference in the different classes.

1. Beginners and High Beginners

The curriculum being used is “Window to the World”, which is based on the Jesus Story in DVD and the Christian Literacy Series.
2. Lesson on Basic English Skills
This class includes practice in speaking, listening, reading and improving grammar.
3. Advanced English with Writing
Are your college papers interesting? Are there problems with your grammar? Is your sentence structure falling apart? Do you have any trouble with capitalization or punctuation? This class will help you to be a more creative writer.
4. Conversational/Reading Class
Different levels of English speaking ability will be in each conversation group. Its purpose is to increase listening or speaking ability and reading comprehension. Students bring their questions or topics to discuss with their tutors. Tutors will work with internationals in small groups during the entire class discussing topics of interest to the students. The second hour will be devoted to Bible reading and discussion.
