Free ESL Classes

English as a Second Language CLASSES (CONVERSATIONAL)

What is ESL?

English as a Second Language (ESL) classes are offered at The Chapel on the Campus as a free service to the LSU community and the surrounding areas of Baton Rouge. Attendees are under no obligation to attend and are not penalized  when they do not attend.

These classes often begin with a voluntary Christian prayer. Additionally, they may also use materials derived from Biblical resources such as the Bible. The focus of the ESL classes is to provide attendees with experiences that further their ability to read, write and communicate in English, and the classroom activities will focus upon these ends.
