Adult Literacy

Free ESL Classes — New Locations and Times!

We now have 9 locations in Northern Pinellas County for LCUP’s English Conversation Classes, with a total of 17 classes available each week.  These classes have a variety of educational opportunities: some provide basic phonics and grammar instruction, while others are designed for more intermediate students.  The strength of all of these informal classes is to give our adult students a chance to visit with each other and tutors and practice their English language skills. 

There is no cost, so please attend many of the classes to see what interests you most.

LCUP RECEIVES GRANT FROM PINELLAS COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

The Literacy Council of Upper Pinellas recently received a generous $7,300 grant from the Pinellas Community Foundation.  The grant will enable the Council to translate the Pinellas County Guide, published in 2018, into Spanish and provide a copy for each branch of the Pinellas County Library Cooperative.  The grant will also fund bilingual books for the Little Free Library located at Dunedin Elementary School.  Grant funds will be used to purchase snacks and supplies for ESL conversation classes operating in multiple locations across northern Pinellas County.

Additionally, the grant will support two tutor trainings for new tutors and background checks for all new volunteers.  Equipment and supplies to help students who want to become citizens will also be supported by the grant.  Brochures and flyers to continue marketing LCUP’s services will also be funded.  We are most appreciative of the Pinellas Community Foundation’s support for our literacy efforts.
