About English as a Second Language

English as a Second Language programs are available on some installations and are also offered at locations in your community. Contact a career coach for help finding the ESL program that best meets your needs.

Learning the English language supports the well-being of military foreign-born spouses and is helpful to their integration into military life. Improving English communication skills will allow foreign-born spouses to pursue further education and find employment. English as a Second Language courses are available on larger installations and are also offered through educational institutions.

English as a Second Language programs may also be an opportunity for English-speaking spouses to obtain employment as ESL teachers on or near base in the United States and on or near installations in overseas locations where they might be stationed. Eligible spouses may use their My Career Advancement Account Scholarship tuition assistance to help pay for ESL teacher training programs and courses.

Use the MilitaryINSTALLATIONS tool to search by installation, state or program to find the information relevant to you. Select ‘Spouse Education, Training and Careers’ under the 'Select a program or service' drop-down menu and your installation or postal code to find a point of contact to advise you on pursuing ESL opportunities.
