English Language Acquisition (ELA) classes are classes offered to help adult, non-native speakers of English to communicate and increase their understanding of American culture. Communication skills such as speaking, listening, reading, writing and grammar are taught using real life situations.

Classes provide an opportunity to increase your English skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening in order to understand and effectively participate in government, education, and workplace systems and key American institutions such as banking and healthcare. ELA also provides classes in US citizenship preparation.

ELA classes are free of charge. You can start at any time. Contact the Program Director at (406) 756-3884 to set up a meeting with the ELA instructor.
