English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

TSLW began in 1985 as a grassroots volunteer organization determined to wipe out adult illiteracy in this area. We were incorporated and established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, Harnett County Literacy in 1985. After over 35 years, our original mission still drives our board, staff,  volunteers, and even our students. We provide FREE basic adult literacy, financial literacy, English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction, citizenship classes, as well as teaching basic computer skills.  Our ultimate goal is to make adult students more educated and employable.

Based on the philosophy of adult literacy pioneer Dr. Frank Laubach, we believe as he did in “each one teach one.” Volunteer tutors are matched one-to-one throughout Harnett, Johnston, and Sampson Counties with individual students at convenient times and locations. 

ESOL Classes are Mondays and Wednesdays from 1:00-3:00pm.

TSLW is offering an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) class in Benson!
