English Classes Open to International Students' Foreign-Speaking Spouses

On a global campus like Georgia Tech’s, many may find themselves wedded to someone from a different background, including a different first language. The Language Institute now offers classes for spouses of international students whose first language is not English.

Classes are offered at two levels: Beginner/Low Intermediate, and Intermediate/Advanced. Beginner/Low Intermediate level class selections include Everyday Conversation and a Reading Club. Intermediate/Advanced classes include American Pronunciation and Improving Oral Skills. All classes take place during weekdays from 10 a.m. to Noon and are $100 for the semester.

The Language Institute is located in the O’Keefe Building, at the corner of Fifth Street and Techwood Drive. Full course descriptions are available on the attached flier. To register, download, complete and submit the registration form to the front desk of O’Keefe.
