English Classes


Do you want to learn English?

CARECEN, in partnership with ONA, offers free English classes to low-income students over 18 years old who live in Nassau or Suffolk County. 


Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced English speaker, we can help! Our classes are 10-weeks long and are all virtual, offered on Zoom. Classes are offered: 

  • January - March 

  • April - June

  • July - September

  • October - December 


Each quarter, students are required to attend class 6 hours a week, and complete extra homework hours, as well. At the end of the quarter, if a student completes all the required hours, they receive a graduation certificate.
