Improve your English for free

The Friends of the Hoboken Public Library run a no-cost English as a Second Language (ESL) conversational English program.

This is the perfect way for non-native English speakers at the “advanced beginner” and “intermediate” skill levels to enhance their everyday conversations in personal and professional situations.

Classes meet on Wednesdays at the Main Library from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. during Fall and Winter/Spring Sessions.

For more information on how to register for the upcoming Fall Session, email info@hobokenfol.org.
