English Language Support

English Learning for refugees at the Good Samaritan Foundation Utah

English Language Learning Groups

GSF believes that English Language Learning is foundational to the success of those we serve. Learning English skills is one of the biggest challenges facing individuals we work with.

Individuals in the communities we serve come from all walks of life. Refugees, for example, may have been doctors, teachers, and other professions before coming to Utah. Still, others come seeking safety, support, and a fresh start. All bring a rich culture and diverse understanding that is meaningful and valuable.

GSF provides high-quality English Language Learning programs catered to the language level of every individuals.

Refugees, Donors and Volunteers Agree!

This moment does not define them, but our response will help define us.

"Being a refugee may be a defining moment in the lives of those who are refugees, but being a refugee does not define them. Like countless thousands before them, this will be a period—we hope a short period—in their lives. Some of them will go on to be Nobel laureates, public servants, physicians, scientists, musicians, artists, religious leaders, and contributors in other fields. Indeed, many of them were these things before they lost everything. This moment does not define them, but our response will help define us" – Elder Patrick Kearon, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
