English as a Second Language (ESL) classes are offered at West Des Moines Human Services (139 6th Street in West Des Moines). These classes are designed to teach adults of limited English proficiency how to read, write, and speak the English language. The classes focus on the fundamental elements of the English language (e.g., spelling, vocabulary, verb tense, grammar). Students are divided into beginning, intermediate and advanced levels. The level of instruction is determined by assessment scores taken during the first class. The classes take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to noon in eight week sessions. The classes are free, although students are required to purchase a book set for $30. Please visit our office to register (see office hours below). Call 222-3663 for more information.
