Church of the Ascension in Shadyside is offering FREE English classes to all of its neighboring communities! The classes, which will start in September, are completely free and geared towards those who are learning or speaking English as a second language. 


The classes are non religious, and will begin on September 12th, and continue all the way through to May 12th. In addition to the classes, there are opportunities to take free trips around Pittsburgh, find conversation partners, and practice grammar and discussion. 


English classes are held on Mondays and Wednesdays for levels 0-6. The classes include topics based on Ted Talks, pronunciation, grammar, and discussion. Most classes are in person at Church of the Ascension, but a few are held online. 


In total, classes run for 14 weeks in the fall semester and 14 weeks in the winter/spring semesters. Church of the Ascension has run their ministry since 2016, and they have served well over 500 students learning English as a second language since then.


Registration and testing for the classes are required to determine what class level will be the best fit for each individual. 

Interested individuals can email the program director, Lu Ann Pengidore at Pittsburghenglish4u@gmail.com for more information on how to register and begin classes, or with any questions or concerns.
