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 Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education with the rest coming from our tuition based programs as well as donations from generous community members.

ILI is proud to announce that its Free English Evening Program is above the state average for:
- student attendance
- learner gain
- student completion.
All this is due to the excellence and dedication of ILI’s teachers and staff.
