Belmont International English website last updated October 11, 2018.

Welcome to our website
 
This site has been created as a medium for teachers and adult students of English
for speakers of other languages to use to share experiences. It is designed primarily
for intermediate to advanced students and their teachers. 

Fall Semester has begun.  

You may still register on line if you are confident you belong in an advanced or moderately advanced class.  Click on "Registration" in the top left of this page and fill out and submit the form.  We are still accepting registrants for the advanced class, but lower level classes are full right now.  When we have another registration period for these classes, I will post it here.

Fall break next week

Our fall break from school will be next week.  We will have no class the week of October 15 - 19.  We will look forward to seeing all of you on Tuesday, October 23.

We have a very congenial group from many different countries.  In the front row are our wonderful volunteers.  Next to me is Sherry Loller, then Joyce Eyler, Ellen McPherson, Joan Nicoll, Irene Boyd, and Sally Tiven.  On the end is Jinjing Meng, our associate teacher from Peabody.

We work hard, but we have fun, too.  Language is an integral part of life, and we enjoy working together, playing together and talking together .

About Belmont International English 
 
An English language school for international students has been in operation at the Belmont United Methodist Church since 1966. 
 
Through the generosity of the church members, around four thousand students from many countries have been helped to improve
 
their proficiency in English and their understanding of American culture.  
 
We welcome new students.  We work hard, but we have fun, too.
