The UUCA ESOL program provides free classes and conversation sessions geared to adult foreigners who are fairly proficient in English speaking and writing but seek language enrichment, grammar improvement, accent reduction, plus increased knowledge of American culture and idioms. Teacher-led classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Conversation-only sessions are offered on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. 

 ESOL includes an email-based English Writing Improvement Program assigns English writing coaches to those wishing to have their writing reviewed and improved. This is an evolving program that might include face-to-face meetings in person or via the Internet.

 ESOL also serves to introduce students to Unitarian Universalism and its place among other religions. ESOL students sometimes attend UUCAVA events and have even become members or friends.

 ESOL volunteer teachers and facilitators find their participation a joy rather than a burden, but occasionally we experience the need for new volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering in any way, please contact Ric Blacksten (ESOL Chair), 703.980.5899, hricblacksten@gmail.com.
