Free English Evening Program (FEEP)

Free English Evening Program (FEEP)

Since 1988 ILI has been providing free English classes for area immigrants and refugees. Offering three levels of English from beginner to low intermediate, students study six hours per week. This is often supplemented with volunteer tutors and computer based programs in our computer lab.
Sixty-five percent of the running costs are covered by the MA Department of Education with the rest coming from our tuition based programs as well as donations from generous community members.

Students who test too high for the Free Evening English program can take an English class in ILI’s World Language Program.

ILI is proud to announce that it’s Free English Evening Program is above the state average for:

  • student attendance
  • assessment
  • learner gain
  • student completion.

All this is due to the excellence and dedication of ILI’s teachers and staff.
