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 their teachers.
Belmont  International 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.

End of fall semester, 2014

The last day of the fall semester was Thursday, December 18.  There will be no class until Monday, January 5, for the Monday class and Tuesday, January 6, for the Tuesday/Thursday class.  Returning students need not re-register unless there is a change in your address, e-mail, telelphone, etc.  If there has been a change, please re-register on the Registration page. If you paid your tuition in the fall semester, you paid for all year, and there is no additional fee.

New students should go to registration page and fill out registration form. 

I hope you use your vacation time to enjoy your family, relax, travel in the USA, and, of course to continue to practice your English by reading, listening, and above all, by talking.   

Ho!  Ho!  Ho!  Santa vistied the Tuesday/Thursday class on our last day.  We said a tearful goodbye to Noemi and Tatiana.  We look forward to seeing many of you in 2015.
