English as a Second Language Classes

Shorefront Jewish Community Council has hosted very successful ESOL classes for the past 9 years. Our classes are in the evenings to allow for working adults to attend them after work. All of our teachers are certified and students are tested before and after taking the class to track progress. Our curriculum is based on real world situations and helps our students at work and in their day to day lives. For questions about our ESOL program please reach out to Liba Shakhman at extension 7503.

I came to the US in 2011 from Uzbekistan and started ESL classes at SJCC in 2012. I first became a home attendant and because of the skills I learned at SJCC I was able to help my clients navigate situations in English. I was then able to take a course to become a hair dresser. I now work at a salon in Manhattan. This is all because of the ESL classes I was able to take at SJCC.
