English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
One of the biggest needs for internationals is to learn the English language. Thousands of adults in the Roanoke region reported that they speak English less than “very well” in the last released census data (2019). Church-based ESOL (English for speakers of other languages) programs are an effective way to support immigrants in English learning, build relationships, and share the hope of Christ. In addition, these programs offer support that public programs often cannot, such as free childcare and even transportation.
