Riverside Language Program offers free classes in English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) to documented, recently-arrived immigrants, asylees and refugee adults from all over the world currently living in New York City.
Our intensive ESOL classes (5 hours a day) encourage adults to make rapid progress in English, allowing them to participate more fully in American life in the shortest possible time.
We also serve as a site for professional development and training for teachers interested in ESOL best practices with a specialty in Silent Way and Counseling Learning approaches. For this, we offer six-week Teaching Practicum opportunities.
Riverside Language Program has been commended by New York State as a model program for ESOL and profiled in The New York Times.
