*Students must be living in the U.S. permanently (not on a temporary visa) and must be at least 17 years old.
ILI also offers free English classes for people in the US temporarily. Free English Open to All classes are taught by teachers in training as part of our TESOL Certificate Course.
Students enrolled in the Free English Program are eligible to apply for the Dean’s Beans Organic Coffee Scholarship to join the Intensive English Program.
Since spring 2017, Dean’s Beans Organic Coffee has been providing scholarships for our immigrant and refugee students to enroll in our fee-based Intensive English Program.
The scholarship recipients join international students in concentrated, full-time learning to significantly improve their English skills in a much shorter period of time.
We appreciate Dean’s generosity and his social activism both locally and around the world! Please, drink Dean’s Beans organic, fair trade and delicious coffee!
The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, United Way of Hampshire County, Baystate Health, and Health New England provide much of the funding for this program. We also thank the many generous local businesses and individual donors who make the classes possible.
