Adult Literacy Program

The Institute for Labor Studies and Research offers English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes for adults in the community, in the workplace, and at union offices. ESOL classes increase the English language skills of adults with limited English proficiency. Our programming is learner-centered, participatory, and taught by an experienced team of dedicated teachers.
