Welcome to Framingham Adult ESL Plus
Framingham Adult English as a Second Language PLUS
(FAESL Plus) was established in 1984 by a group of concerned citizens in the community using private donations. The program has grown from 30 students to more than 640 students each semester, in the morning and evening components. The majority of funding is from State and Federal grants. However, the program is still dependent on community and private donations, as well as fund raising to maintain services.
Framingham Adult English as a Second Language PLUS has provided free English language instruction and life skills training to more than 5,000 immigrants in the Framingham area. The program has helped hundreds of students work towards their High School Equivalency. We have been a passageway to a better life for people from over fifty countries and a wide variety of backgrounds.
Our philosophy is to provide each student with the language skills necessary to achieve personal success at home, at work, and in the community.
Framingham Adult English As a Second Language PLUS is a unique program for people who want to make a successful transition into American society and develop the academic skills necessary to meet their goals. In addition to English classes, our program offers a wide range of options and opportunities for every student, including classes in citizenship, computer technology, family literacy, adult basic education, and High School Equivalency. Counseling is available whenever classes are in session.
At FAESL Plus, students and teachers work together to create activities which are realistic, relevant, and rewarding for all participants. In dynamic learning environments, students strive toward English fluency, academic achievement, economic empowerment, and civic
involvement. Our common goal is the development of communication and academic skills that will allow our students to integrate their talents and energy into the life of the community and the country.
