English Language Classes

The journey of resettling in a foreign land is extremely overwhelming which brings cultural shock and many more. LORI with its commitment to keep serving the community of refugees and immigrants have come up with English as a Second Language (ESL) class. It is undoubtedly a crucial component of survival for people who migrated to an English-speaking country.

This basic ESL program will help you to develop the essential English skills to integrate with the local communities and foster social relationships. Additionally, you will earn the prerequisite for employment in any sector and accessing any essential services such as health, education, and government services. In general, English language competence will empower you and allow you to be involved in civic participation.

With our specialized ESL courses, we offer a varied range of English classes focussing on everyday English speaking competency to anyone in need.
