Are you ready to learn English? We can help! We have been helping adults 17 years and older learn English for more than 100 years. Each year more than 1,800 students from 50 different countries, speaking 66 different languages, come to Emily Griffith to learn English. At Emily Griffith, we offer two English language programs.


Classes for any English language learner, regardless of immigration status.

Classes for those who have refugee or SIV status, have been granted final asylum approvals, have Humanitarian Parolee status from Afghanistan or Ukraine AND have been in the US for less than 5 years.

Not sure which program is for you? Please email us at learnenglish@emilygriffith.edu


Class materials will be provided in class. You are encouraged to bring a notebook and paper, however, it is not required. Your instructor may have other recommendations on the first day of class.

Emily Griffith does not provide students with a computer or laptop. There is a computer lab available for student use on the 6th floor in room 662. If you are taking online classes it is expected that you have a computer or phone and access to reliable internet access so you can join your online class.

All of our online classes are live classes with a group and an instructor. You will receive a Google Meet link after registration and will use the same link for the full duration of the class. Students are expected to login on time and be active in the class. Students are expected to attend class from a quiet space without interruptions.

Yes! You can take multiple classes during the same term. However, if you have a busy work schedule or family commitments that require a lot of time and attention, we recommend starting with one class.

The more classes you are able to attend, the more you will learn!

We encourage you to attend every class. However, we understand that sometimes you may need to miss a class. If you need to be absent, please email your teacher.

Drop-in tutoring is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 – 5:00 pm in rooms 506 and 653. Email academic.empowerment@emilygriffith.edu if you cannot attend these sessions.

We are committed to providing academic accommodations and support in order to create equal opportunities to participate in our programs. You may learn more about our Disability Support Services and request accommodations here.

Emily Griffith’s Main Campus does not offer free parking. Paid parking options are available in metered spots on the street and in area parking lots. Nearby lots have rates ranging from $5-$16 MAX. You can use BestParking to find a spot. Because of the limited availability of parking, we recommend using public transit if possible.

Free parking is available if you are taking CRESL classes at our Aspen Hall location at 7039 East 18th Ave, Denver, CO 80220. 

Emily Griffith Technical College offers a wide range of Career & Technical Education programs and apprenticeships. If you are interested in learning more please see the linked program pages or email admissions@emilygriffith.edu for more information.

Emily Griffith welcomes all students, however, we do not participate in the student visa program and cannot provide the I-20 form.
