Belmont International English website last updated March 2, 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.


Today was Mardi Gras, and the saints (and sinners) went marchin' through Dick's  and Mary Kaye's classes and threw some beads.  A good time was had by all.


Clau, Ieda, Jiyan, Mili, and Proshat are throwing beads and entertaining Mary Kaye's class. 


Clau is showing me how it's done in Chile.


For our exercises earlier this semester, Carmen really got the room jumpin' with a Spanish dance.    In addition to getting the blood flowing, it got everyone in a good mood.

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 .

Various topics are discussed on the pages of this site. To find the topic you are

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.
