The heart and soul of our organization is to give Knoxville's refugees, and other internationals,
the most basic tool needed to thrive: English.
We are one of the largest support organizations for adult English language learners in Knoxville, offering 7 levels of instruction (Beginner-Advanced), online and in-person classes, with childcare and transportation assistance available.
Believing the English language to be the currency of advancement, we want to empower our students and their families to integrate while helping them preserve the tenets of their own culture.
Informed staff, along with students, are available to speak and share their stories at local organizations.

- English is More Than a Language
