The Literacy Council of Norristown provides numerous programs to help adults reach educational and professional goals. One such program, the English as a Second Language Program, provides differing levels of instruction on increasing English skills. These instructor led classes are provided in various fashions, from strict academic settings to more conversation-based methods. 

Currently the Literacy Council of Norristown collaborates with the MCIU Head Start Central Norristown and ELA sites to provide free ESL courses to parents desiring to learn more English. All materials, including books and worksheets, are given to the enrolled parents free of charge. Parents who meet the minimum attendance and participation requirements are also awarded a certificate of completion for the courses.
