Tacoma Community House’s English classes help adults improve their English listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. We have classes all year-round, Monday through Thursday, at various times in order to accommodate students’ schedules. Classes go from Level 1 (basic) to Level 6 (advanced).
Why take English classes?
Life in the United States is challenging for people who do not speak English. By learning the language in a supportive, welcoming environment, students gain the confidence to use English in everyday situations. That might be answering the phone, filling out forms at the doctor’s office, or helping a child with homework! People who speak English also have a much easier time finding jobs and enrolling in school/training programs.
