ESOL Classes

Project READ is the primary ESOL [English for Speakers of Other Languages] referral source in Dayton. By calling the referral hotline, one can be referred to an ESOL class based on time preference, child care availability, location/bus route, and skill level. One doesn’t need to speak English in order to access the hotline- interpretation is available for free. The hotline also has free telephonic interpretation available to limited English proficient (LEP) callers.

To take advantage of this support service, contact the Project READ Helpline at (937) 461-7323.
