Learning English

Here are links to organizations who offer free classes in learning to speak, read and write English: 

Ozark Literacy Council

The Ozark Literacy Council offers four levels of instruction and a wide range of meeting times to accommodate the needs of students. When students enroll into the program, the OLC assesses their language skill level. Using this information, the OLC can make recommendations for classes based on that student’s language level and needs. All classes are free.

Fayetteville Public Schools Adult Education

Three different levels of English classes are available for adults, and students are placed in classes based on their skill level and scheduling needs. All classes are free.

Northwest Technical Institute (Springdale)
