ESL Conversation Classes

These classes, sponsored by the Friends of the Hoboken Public Library, are designed for people who are at the ‘advanced beginner’ and ‘intermediate’ level who want to join others in a lively hour of conversational English on a variety of topics.

Classes are taught by experienced tutors. You’ll receive friendly advice on common usage, learn vocabulary and explore common idioms. Drop in for one class or attend the full 10-week Spring, Fall, or Winter session. Classes are held on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Hoboken Public Library. See the Library calendar for dates.
