English as a Second Language (ESL)

The world’s people are coming to the United States and Canada. Immigrants make up approximately 13% of the current U.S. population. Canada’s percentage of foreign-born is slightly more than 20%. It is estimated that nearly one in seven people who reside in the United States is from another nation.

About 50% of the estimated U.S. 42.4 million immigrants are “limited English Proficient.” In Canada, limited English proficiency is tied to poor or declining health.

You can make a difference in the lives of immigrants in your community—whether they are professionals, students or refugees. You can use English classes to meet immigrants’ basic needs and intentionally share Jesus with them. Volunteers do not have to speak another language to teach English.
