English Language Learners

The library aims to help our residents acclimate to their new home. In addition to a comprehensive ESL collection that can be borrowed, we host ESL classes and English Conversation Groups throughout the year.


English Conversation Group

English Conversation Groups meet at the library on Monday evenings and Thursday mornings to practice English speaking skills from September through June. Participants must be 21 years of age or older, and able to read and speak some English before they are admitted to the group. For information or to register for the group please call Adult Services at 732-390-6772 or email librarian Paul Kibala at pkibala@ebpl.org.”

The library does not offer English as a Second Language tutoring, but tutors and their students are welcome to meet at the library.



The East Brunswick Public Library offers English language-learning materials for lending on all topics and for all levels, from beginner to advanced/professional texts. Choose from DVDs, audio CDs, and textbooks. We also offer a variety of study guides for the IELTS, TOEFL and TOEIC exams.



Tutors and their students are welcome to meet at the library. There are ample spaces for meetings, including small group study rooms that can be reserved by cardholders. iPads are also available to use in-house, so students and instructors can learn using audio/video, including our selection of websites for learning English.



East Brunswick Public Library cardholders can access Pronunciator, a language learning program provided through the library. Just enter your library card number to get started, and learn English from 50 native languages. A mobile app is also available.

You can also use the mobile application Duolingo.  This is a free language learning service that uses bite-sized lessons so that you could learn in just a few minutes per day.
