Interested volunteers can help over 150 adult learners master the English language, prepare for American citizenship, learn to converse fluently in English, improve their writing skills and integrate into the local community.

All classes take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at St. Mark Christian Formation Center (9972 Vale Road, Vienna). Registration for Spring Term is Tuesday, April 3 and Thursday, April 5 from 7 – 8 p.m. at St. Mark’s Church .
