What It Is and Why......

Did you know that today over 15% of persons in Olathe regularly speak a language other than English? For many of those people, there is a sense of entrapment without the ability to communicate in their neighborhood environment where English is always spoken.

English as a Second Language (ESL), is an English language study program for nonnative speakers. The goal of an ESL program is to improve the students' level of English. ESL classes teach different language skills, depending on students' English abilities, interests, and needs. Programs teach conversational English, grammar, reading, listening comprehension, writing, and vocabulary.

While teaching English skills is the tool used to attract people to this program, the ministry offers far more. ESL at Westside will build relational connections with people in our community. We will learn together, play together, eat together, and do life together. We’ll be the hands and feet of Jesus to those who feel disconnected from others. We look forward to seeing how God uses this program to build His Kingdom in Olathe and the surrounding areas.

 Three Sessions Each Year:

September 6–November 15, 2017

January 10–March 21, 2018

Intermediate–This class is for those who can communicate in English, but seek improvement.

ESL attendees are encouraged to bring their children, teens, and other family members to join our regularly scheduled evening activities.
