Description ESL El Centro provides free English language classes to adult Spanish speakers at a community center in Trenton. Classes run Monday through Friday from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm, and each volunteer is expected to teach once a week for the duration of the semester. We provide transportation to and from Trenton in Pace Center vehicles, leaving from Dillon Gym parking lot at 4:45 pm and returning to campus by 7:30 pm. Our students range from absolute beginners to proficient in English, and classes typically have 4 to 10 students. As classes are taught entirely in English, no Spanish language skills are required. Previous teaching experience is preferred though also not required.
