Introducing Basic ESL

Baker County Library District is pleased to announce a new free digital service for our online users. Basic ESL for Libraries is an online English language learning program that improves an individual’s listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through a simple to follow, yet instructionally proven curriculum.

Students learn English quickly and effectively on relevant topics including: family, home, school and many other topics. In each lesson students learn key vocabulary and how to use that vocabulary in conversation.

This tool can be used by individuals working independently or by groups with a facilitator and includes native language support for 19 languages. Those languages include Amharic, Bengali, English, French, Haitian Creole, Japanese, Nepali, Russian, Spanish, Urdu, Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, German, Hindi, Korean, Portuguese, Somali, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.
