Belmont International English website last updated May 18, 2016.
Welcome to our website
site has been created as a medium for teachers and adult students of English
for Speakers of Other Languages to use to share experiences. It is designed primarily
for intermediate to advanced students and their teachers.
Belmont International English is a class for moderately advanced to advanced students.
We emphasize oral communication, but we also cover grammar and American civilization. To register on
line, click on the registration tab on the left of this page and fill out

You may register for the fall semester at Belmont International English (BIE) at any time.
Go to the Registration tab on this page, and on the registration page, fill out the form and submit it. I will
send you detailed information when I get your registration. There may be some delay if I am out of town on vacation.
If you register on line, no other registration is needed. Simply come to the first class in room 203 on Tuesday,
September 13. Class begins promptly at 9 a.m. Come a little early the first day.
BIE is for moderately advanced to advanced students. If you are not sure
which class will be best for you, I suggest that you register with Belmont ESL. You must do this in person. Registration
will take place September 6, 7, and 8, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Community Center of Belmont United Methodist Church,
2007 Acklen Ave, in Hillsboro Village. The Community center is a separate building west of the main church building.
If you find BIE too difficult, you may change to a lower level class in Belmont ESL. If you find your class too easy
for you, you may transfer to BIE. The teachers work be closely together, and we want you to be in the class where
you learn the most.
