This program is sponsored by the members
of the Belmont United Methodist Church, and is a part of the same program as Belmont International English. Our programs
work very closely together. For those who find Belmont International English too difficult, it is possible to change
classes to a different level in Belmont ESL, and for those who find their class in Belmont ESL too easy, it is easy to transfer
to Belmont International English.
Our registration procedures are slightly different. One may register for BIE on line at any time.
(See registration page. Click on "registration" in the upper left of the home page.) For Belmont
ESL, one must register in person at the church, 2007 Acklen Ave. Regular registration for the spring
semester is complete, but there will probably be other registrations from time to time during the school year. I will
post the exact dates and times on this webpage as soon as they are decided. For more information, contact
Mr. Charles Hewgley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nashville Public Library
The Nashville Public Library sponsors some ESL programs of its own, and also keeps a list of
other ESL resources in Nashville. The programs run by the library are all very good. I do not know the
quality of all of the other programs, but it is almost certain that all on this list are at least adequate. If
you try one, and find that it's particularly good (or particularly bad), please let me know.

Nashville International Center
NICE has summer classes. It offers ESL classes at six different levels ranging from beginning
literacy to high intermediate. Classes are offered during morning and evening hours.

I have heard good things
about this program. They are very flexible and can tailor class to your needs. Although subsidized by the State
of Tennessee, their programs are not cheap.
