Beaverton Literacy Council provides low-cost ESL classes for adults.
Founded more than 40 years ago, Beaverton Literacy Council (BLC) is a community-based, all volunteer organization. Our volunteers, many of whom have been with BLC for many years, are trained to offer positive, encouraging tutoring experiences.
The Beaverton Literacy Council provides adult instruction in English literacy, English as a Second Language, and U.S. Citizenship.
All new students need to take a placement test. We want to make sure that you are in a class that is not too easy or too hard. There are 6 levels of English classes.
