About English for Work

This one-quarter program supports immigrants and refugees with improving their English language skills and preparing for employment. Students practice speaking, listening, reading, and writing as they learn about topics such as skills and strengths, job search, resumes, and interviewing. Near the end of the quarter, students participate in mock interviews conducted by local employers — a highlight of the program!

Class Information
  • Students participate in online class on Zoom two times per week. Students who need a computer can borrow a Hopelink Chromebook.
  • Morning and evening class options are available.
  • Classes are best for students who have intermediate or advanced-level English skills. We assess students to determine their level and help decide if our program is a good fit.

Students must:
  • plan to get a job in the U.S. or enroll in job training/college to prepare to get a job (within the next 6 months)
  • be 18 years or older
  • live in the U.S. permanently (we cannot serve people who have a temporary visa such as a B, F, J, or M visa)
  • live in Hopelink’s service area (for example, in Shoreline, Bothell, Kenmore, Kirkland, Bellevue, Redmond, or surrounding cities)
