Welcome to your home away from home

Throughout the year we offer conversational English classes designed to help you improve your listening and speaking skills. You can join us for trips to the mountains, the beach and other places of interest in North Carolina. Around important US holidays, there are activities planned to help you celebrate these American cultural traditions. Through these and other activities you can build friendships with Americans and people from around the world. There are hundreds of people throughout the year from over 30 different countries who participate in our various activities.

We also have four ethnic language church partners at Forest Hills for internationals, Christians, and others interested persons. Perhaps you would like to visit the Chinese Baptist Church, Farsi Fellowship, United African Baptist Church, or Iglesia Bautista La Roca. Browse our Ministry to Internationals site to learn more about these and other activities for Internationals at our family of churches at Forest Hills.

We are located in walking distance from N.C. State University on HIllsborough Street and we are on the #4 Go Raleigh Bus line.

Visit us and make friends with the World!

ESL/Bible: Sundays 9:30am
Classes meet every Sunday, all year long

The Bible is a world book and of interest to every major religion, not just to Christians. Come, with no pressure to accept our beliefs, and study English from the Bible. Questions are freely answered, and English is improved. Classes are small and opportunities to practice English and share ideas are abundant. Classes are divided according to the English level of the participants. We meet on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:45 in the morning.
