Features News


the English as a Second Language (ESL) Class Map locates English language classes throughout the City. This online and interactive map will help Philadelphians who want to learn to speak English find classes in their neighborhoods. There are nearly 30 English as a Second Language (ESL) class provider locations.  The locations include Office of Adult Education (OAE) Partner Providers as well as other providers.

How to Find ESL Classes
In the map, class locations are searchable by a nearby address, City Council District, or by clicking on any of the provider location icons. Green icons show OAE Partner Providers, phone numbers and addresses. Purple icons show other providers and their websites.

For researchers, additional map variables are available in Open Data Philly.
