English Language Learners

Our Purpose

To show Christ to Nashville immigrants by providing English language classes and facilitating United States cultural integration.

To assist students with developing English language skills so they can self-confidently seek out further education and contribute to society in the United States.

To promote multicultural communication and understanding by developing friendships with individuals from different countries and cultures, as well as a broadened self-perspective on life and living, both in the US and elsewhere.

Learn the English Language in a one-on-one setting

Students will have the opportunity to learn fundamental and conversational English language skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) through one-on-one tutor sessions. We provide research-based curriculum (Cambridge Ventures) at a cost of $40 per student. We gladly accept donations in order to provide a limited number of scholarships for new students.

Serve as an English Language tutor

We are in need of English Language tutors willing to commit 2-3 hours per week for a minimum of six months. Schedule is flexible based on availability of the tutor and student.

Tutors will meet with their assigned language partner once or twice each week (depending on availability) either online or in a mutually agreeable public location.

No prior tutoring experience is necessary, only a desire to engage in relational learning with your assigned student! 510 Foundation will provide tutor training, and tutors will receive ongoing support from ministry leadership throughout their involvement with the English Language Learners program. Tutors will be expected to report monthly volunteer hours for grants/funding purposes.

Communication Junction

Join us at our monthly Communication Junction, held at Nashville First Church of the Nazarene. This event provides an opportunity to engage in multicultural fellowship, experience spiritual growth, and build new cross-cultural friendships. We hope to see you there!
