My name is Alantha Carter, and I established The English Language School because I felt that there needed to be a greater variety of truly EFFECTIVE ESL opportunities in central New Jersey. There are many ways to learn English, from attending expensive schools to online tutoring to “teach yourself” books, websites, and apps. TELS offers something different: a personal and authentic, thorough and responsive approach to the teaching of the English language.

At TELS, we believe that involved and in person (and in the same room!) instruction enhances confidence and fluency. At TELS, we believe that getting to know our students as people and as learners accelerates the learning process. And finally, at TELS, we believe that every classroom should be an interactive community of learners; when we communicate, engage, and connect with each other, there is no limit to what we can achieve. At The English Language School:

  • Class sizes are kept small so you receive plenty of individual attention and students get to know each other well.
  • We know that to become confident in the four language skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing), ELLs need instruction in the fundamentals of English grammar, as well as daily practice in vocabulary, pronunciation, and idioms.
  • We feel strongly that creativity, play and socializing belong in every classroom–even an English language class! Classes will include independent, partner, and group work; reading and writing authentic texts in a variety of genres; singing songs, playing games and role playing; developing creative and interactive projects, giving presentations, and more!

Learning a new language is a process, not a destination…

Traveler, your footprints

are the path and nothing more;

Traveler, there is no path,

the path is made by walking.

–Antonio Machado
