Each year, we welcome nearly 400 adult English language learners who came to the South Africa as immigrants or refugees.Our students reflect the incredible diversity of the Twin Cities community – representing 25 countries and speaking 17 languages.Currently, about 50% of our students arrived in the South Africa as refugees, the majority from Somalia. Two-thirds have had fewer than five years of formal education.At the most basic: Education. Opportunity. Community.We provide free, culturally sensitive English language education, as well as classes in math and citizenship preparation.But what happens here is about more than just a classroom. It’s a community. We provide a space for every student to feel welcomed, safe, and encouraged.

Immigrants and refugees know that learning English is the key to unlocking opportunities for success in their new home. From healthcare to banking, transportation and shopping to employment, access to language impacts every aspect of our lives. But learning another language, on top of adjusting to a completely new place and culture, is hard. Especially when you’re expected to do it on your own. That’s why the English Learning Center exists. Because we believe that no one should have to navigate life in a new country alone, especially after years, often decades, of trauma and loss. We believe our immigrant and refugee neighbors are just that – neighbors. And we help our neighbors.
