Free Classes for ESL at the NPL

In partnership with Bossier Parish Community College (BPCC) Education Department, the Natchitoches Parish Library (NPL) will be offering a free English as a second language (ESL) class. The classes are completely free and open to the public. The classes will meet every Monday from 2 PM to 6 PM, beginning September 9. This will be the first class and registration day. Anyone considering attending is encouraged to come to the first meeting of the class to talk with the teacher and have them assist with the registration.

For those with children, there will also be free tutoring available during the same period from 2 PM to 6 PM. Tutors will assist children, from pre-k to elementary, with reading and math. Three to four tutors will be present each day. Multiple spots may be booked if there are extra tutors available. To reserve a spot, call the NPL Children’s Desk at 318-238-9222.

“Many of you may know someone who has traveled quite a way to make Natchitoches their home, and many are looking to better their English skills,” says Alan Niette, NPL Community Outreach Coordinator. “This partnership with BPCC will be a great, and totally free to attend, resource for our community.”

If you have any questions, about this or any other NPL activities, you may call the NPL 318-357-3280.

  1. Fire and Ice

    BY ROBERT FROST

    Some say the world will end in fire,
    Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice,
    I think I know enough of hate
    To say that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    PS. One ought to learn English before reading/learning KJV and the whole lot of other books consecrated by the breath/word of God.

  2. I can’t see how people being given a chance to learn English hurts anyone. What else are libraries and community colleges for, if not to help people learn?

  3. Our tax dollars being spent on free language classes while our infrastructure crumbles. The library sure has money to burn.

    • Maybe ICE will be there…

      Last week there was an article and some posts about the library’s allocation of $3.2 million annually. Now I am told it’s actually $4.3 million. Yeah, money to burn.
