At the Language School, a tutor helps a woman with English language skills.

Over 24 years ago, a few women began the Catholic Worker Language School. These women touched a tender nerve in the lives of the poor. Fifteen volunteer teachers teach English to over 55 women. Another 12 tutors work with about 20 children doing weekly homework. Learning a language empowers the poor and gives them choices. This is one way to help the Word become flesh.

  1. Hi what are the requirements to join? I have an aunt she’s in her late 40’s. It amazes me how eager she is to learn and get ahead in life. This would be a great program for her to learn English. What proficiency would she need to begin with? Is their a cost for the program?
    Thank you.

  2. The program is free: there is no cost. All that is needed is her desire to learn English. There are classes for every level. I suggest that you call Pam at the language school. 650-366-8315
