Language ETC (LETC) offers English and literacy training to low-income adult immigrants in the greater Washington area using volunteer teachers and tutors. The organization’s mission is to empower and enable adult immigrants through education to become contributing and self-reliant community members. LETC provides affordable programs to more than 1,000 unique students annually, including English as a Second Language, Spanish literacy, computer literacy instruction and citizenship exam preparation. It educates more immigrants annually than any other non-governmental organization in the area -- and no willing student is turned away. Students also have free access to a Multimedia Language Lab, conversation groups, writing workshops and one-on-one tutoring.
