Programs and Classes

Whether you're looking for classroom learning

or one-on-one instruction, South Bay Literacy Council 

has multiple options for English language learners, and our classes are free.

English as a Second Language (ESL)

This program helps adult learners improve communication and life skills, for example - applying for a job, preparing for a doctor's visit, attending a parent-teacher conference, obtaining a driver's license, and any other tasks that may be challenging.

Literacy for English Speakers (LES)

This program is for fluent English Speakers who need help with reading, writing, spelling and pronunciation skills. The Reading Horizons Elevate ® (RHE) online resource is our primary tool. It is a modern, web-based course that features assessments, a variety of practice exercises, and lots of feedback.
