English as a Second Language (ESL) Classes

The YMCA of Southern Maine offers English as a Second Language (ESL) classes to community members at our Greater Portland branch. These classes are run in partnership with Intercambio, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving immigrant lives.

ENGLISH CONVERSATION WILL BE AVAILABLE THIS SUMMER! Schedule coming soon.

Our volunteer-led classes run for eight weeks and meet twice a week for two hours. Childcare is provided.

Fee: $10, financial assistance is available.

Next Class Begins Fall 2017!

To qualify for fall classes, you must take a placement test. The next test will take place on June 1st between 9am-12pm at the Greater Portland Branch, 217 High Street in Portland.

Please encourage anyone interested in taking an ESL class to come to the branch during that time.
