ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE
GLA works with international adults ages 17 and older who wish to learn English. We serve a diverse population, with students in our program from over 60 countries. GLA asks students to commit to a 60- hour course in order to allow time for language learning to occur. All students take an English pretest upon registration and are placed in level-appropriate small group classes. Program managers and volunteer teachers work with the students to meet their goals of managing everyday life, communicating with teachers and others in the community, getting a job, and moving on to higher education. After 60 hours of study and successful completion of a post-test, the student will receive a certificate and move to the next level of classes.
All GLA Program Managers who work with the ESL programs are TESOL Certified instructors.Citizenship Classes
GLA offers Citizenship preparation to those who need to pass the Naturalization Test. (This class is separate from our 60-hour program.) Students must register for this class and test at an ESL Level 3 or higher. The curriculum includes classroom instruction using civics and English study materials from the USCIS website, interview and test video, 100 questions and more.

About Greenville Literacy Association, Inc.

Greenville Literacy Association’s mission is to enrich our community by increasing the literacy and employability of our citizens.
GLA was founded more than fifty years ago when a group of community leaders realized that there had to be solutions to the problem of adult under-education. Today the Association is one of the largest community-based literacy programs in South Carolina and one of the most highly developed in the nation. Hundreds of trained volunteer tutors and small group instructors are active in the agency's programs, literally changing lives in a very positive way. GLA serves the community through two earning centers in Greenville and Simpsonville, and through partnerships in Greer, West Greenville and the Berea area.
We'll work with your schedule.
