A recent survey on the needs of Porter County revealed that one in ten families in our area speak a language other than English at home. We know that an ability to speak English is crucial to finding employment, and connecting neighbors to one another, so we want to help! Compass currently offers three different levels of English on Tuesday evenings, so there is a group that will feel comfortable for anyone to begin with. All of our teachers are trained and supported by experts in the field of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Some of our teachers also bring their own Master's Degree in TESOL and decades of experience. We also arrange for English conversation partners throughout the week, so we can likely work around your schedule and location needs!
Most important of all, you'll find our teachers to be dedicated to helping participants be successful in their endeavor to master the English language and adapt to our culture in the United States and Northwest Indiana. All of our classes are free of charge, and include childcare. If you are in need of transportation, we can also provide support. Please join us to learn English and meet new friends from the United States as well as other countries around the globe!
