Providing free English classes and services for immigrants and refugees since 1988. Teaching languages and training teachers since 1984.
ILI offers Free English classes for immigrants and refugees year-round in downtown Northampton. Our school is a place where people are encouraged to learn and where they can tell their stories in a safe and friendly environment.
Our students are from a wide variety of countries and have diverse backgrounds. Some are professionals with advanced degrees, some have never finished high school, some have escaped war-torn countries, some come seeking better economic opportunities.
They all walk through our door with one thing in common: the desire to learn English to improve their lives.
We invite you to click on the videos and hear the voices of our students and hear their stories of how ILI has changed their lives.
We are inspired to empower our learners with the language they need to succeed as important contributors to our larger community.
