English Classes

Mary J, Treglia Community House offers  classes to  English Language Learners (ELL) from the pre-lit level and beyond.  The student experience is enriched  through hands-on experiences such as cooking classes, field trips, and computer time. We also enhance the students experience through guest speakers, tutoring, and conversation partners.

Prospective students can enroll at our office by filling out a registration form, taking a placement test, and paying a small fee for the supplies.  Students are then placed in a class according to their level.  We can’t wait to have you join us! 

Please email ELLInstructor@marytreglia.org for additional questions.
