For Beginner Level Students:

Princeton Adult School offers multi-skill classes on Tuesdays and conversation classes on Thursdays. Each multi-skill class on Tuesdays is linked to a conversation class on Thursdays. Students are encouraged to take both the Tuesday and Thursday classes to maximize learning. However, students may choose to register for just the Tuesday class or just the Thursday class.  

The Tuesday night classes teach reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Students learn conversational American English and review practical grammar, idioms, and vocabulary. The Thursday conversation classes are designed to help students improve oral communication skills and confidence in speaking.

NOTE Each instructor will notify registered students about the textbook for the course. Students taking both Tuesday and Thursday courses at the same level will use the same textbook for both courses.

All ESL courses will be taught online using Zoom technology. ESL students can register online using a credit card. Students who are not sure of their level, need to pay with cash or need to request financial assistance, please come to in-person registration or call 609-683-1101 for more information.

In-person registration will be held on Saturday, September 18, from 9:30 -11:00 am near the main entrance of Princeton High School, 151 Moore Street, Princeton, NJ 08540. Rain date will be Saturday, Sept. 25, 9:30-11:00. Scholarship information will be available at in-person registration.
