English Language Learning


Saratoga Springs Public Library offers classes in English Language Learning at no cost. Beginning and intermediate level classes focus on developing English language vocabulary, fluency, and reading skills in a group setting. The classes create a fun and friendly learning environment for practicing English. Our literacy volunteer teachers seek to help students feel comfortable and confident in using English in their daily lives within a diverse American culture.
