How much does it cost?
It is FREE !! We offer this as a service and as a help to others. There really is no cost. It is a gift from BSF/BCM at MIT.
Who can come?
Any international student or spouse is welcome; this includes post docs, research staff, grads or undergrads, international scholars or exchange students. Many participants are students or spouses of students at MIT, but participants come from other places as well. Since you now know about the free English class you are welcome to attend. We review interesting topics, articles, learn new vocabulary or discuss news, cultural differences, relationships, and make lasting friendships. Join us.
Do I have to register?
Due to Covid protocols & limited space please register ahead of time at bsf.mit.edu/english. Some can register on their first day with your contact information. Just come ready to learn on whatever day you prefer and come as often or as little as you are able, but it is best to try to come to each class.
How can I enter campus or the W11 Building?
MIT community members will need their MIT i.d. card to enter. Visitors may need to receive permission before gaining entry to the building. In September we expect MIT to continue the same campus access. Students, spouses and affiliates should have access to W11, but others may need to contact us for access. You can look at up to date rules at https://now.mit.edu
Can I bring my kids to the English classes?
Yes, some parents do. Infants and small children are welcome to attend with you. We do not have any childcare during our classes so children will be expected to sit quietly with you. (It is fine to bring a child and then walk them around the building if they need a break.)
Free English Class has been sponsored for over 25 years by BSF & BCM at MIT. [See Michael Dean, Chaplain and Sponsor, center in green. Most class topics are organized by David Miller, our ESL Coordinator, a properly trained & experienced instructor. We are glad he is on our team.]
