English Language Learner (ELL) 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 an assessment test taken prior to or during the first class. The classes take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to noon. The classes are free, although students are required to purchase a book set for $30. Transportation is available to West Des Moines residents. Free drop-in childcare for children ages two years to pre-kindergarten is also available. Call 515-222-3663 for more information.
