Welcome to our web site!
This 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
English, an advanced class with emphasis on oral communication, is only one of the English classes supported by the generosity
of the Belmont United Methodist Church. There are also English classes for beginner and intermediate English learners
at the church. For more information on these classes, click on the link below.

We Celebrate Thanksgiving
Belmont ESL classes celebrated Thanksgiving on November 20 in the Community Center
Our class had a good time together with the other classes for the Thanksgiving celebration. We
enjoyed tasting the traditional American food, as well as samples of food from many cultures.
Senior Pastor Ken Edwards welcomes our group. Of the many
things we are thankful for today, one of the things we are most grateful for is the generous gift of these lovely classrooms
and all the support that the members of the Belmont United Methodist Church provide for us. For almost fifty years, the BUMC
has provided classrooms and material and moral support for our mission to teach English language and American culture to newcomers
Mary Kaye and Dick, our fearless leaders.
Mary Jane and Cleatus are serving it up.
