Chinatown ESL is the largest of the Chinatown Committee programs.
With over 600 adults enrolled per semester, ESL provides several
levels of free English instruction for the Chinatown community both
during the school year and over the summer.
Our volunteer teachers are students and alumni from Harvard and
other nearby schools. Teachers work in pairs, teaching a two-hour class
that meets once each weekend for eight weeks over the course of a
semester. In the summer,
teachers have the opportunity to participate in
a combined ESL-Citizenship program - three classes of ESL and one class
of Citizenship each weekend.
Class sizes range from less than ten to over thirty. At the lower
levels, students are divided up into Mandarin and Cantonese classes. At
the higher levels, classes are taught entirely or almost entirely in
English, so non-Chinese speakers are always encouraged to
