English as a Second Language
We are working to determine our ESL services for fall 2020. Please check back for more information as it becomes available.
Need help improving your English reading and speaking skills? Get one-on-one help with a tutor. Call the Elgin Literacy Connection at (224) 215-6515 to be matched with a tutor in the Schaumburg area.
If you're interested in helping others, we're also looking for volunteer tutors! You'll need to complete a 12-hour training and commit to spending 1 to 2 hours per week with an English language learner. If you're interested, visit the Elgin Literary Connection website or call them at (847) 742-6565. Trainings also will be held periodically at the Library; please check back for 2020 dates.
We host free discussion groups for intermediate students who want to use and improve their English speaking skills.
Space is limited; email Claudia Baranowski at @email if you are interested in attending.
