Spring Semester English Classes are Starting Soon!

Registration for our Iowa City English classes is from 9:30-11:00 on Monday, January 30th at the Good News Bible Church, 845 Pepperwood Lane, in Iowa City.  (It’s the street behind Kmart).  Classes will begin on Feb 1st and meet on Mondays and Wednesdays, 9:45-11:30AM.

An informal conversation group also meets at Lucky’s Market on Friday mornings, 10:00AM-Noon.

We are starting a new, beginning only class at the Coralville Library on Friday mornings, 9:30-11:00AM.  There is only 1 teacher for this single class, so enrollment will be limited to people with very little knowledge of English.  If you think you might need a beginning class, registration will be 9:30-11:00 on Friday, February 3rd.  Classes will begin on Friday, February 10th.  The Coralville Public Library is at 1401 5th St. in Coralville.

If you have children in the local school system, there is also an evening class at Grant Wood Elementary School in Iowa city on Monday/Wednesday 6:00PM-7:30PM, starting on January 23rd.
We look forward to meeting you!
