The Massasoit/Stoughton ESOL Program is a collaborative partnership between Massasoit Community College, Stoughton Public Schools, and the Town of Stoughton, funded by a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE). The program addresses the need for Stoughton area adults to gain English proficiency. Based on individual student needs, our instructors tailor lessons to maximize opportunities for students to attain their life goals.

Classes are held from September to June, following the Stoughton Public Schools calendar. The 34-week long program offers Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced levels of ESOL. Topics include reading, writing, grammar, American Culture & Civics, numeracy, conversation, pronunciation, and computer labs.

Placements are chosen through a lottery system. Interested students must register to be included in the lottery that is held twice a year: August & January. Download ESOL Lottery form.

All classes are offered FREE of charge to students with limited English proficiency! Classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday Evenings from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.

ABE Massasoit/Stoughton ESOL Free English Classes

Due to high demand, the Massasoit/Stoughton ESOL program has begun to use a lottery system for a seat in our FREE English classes. The lottery is held twice a year: once for the Fall semester, and once for the Spring semester.

The registration for the Fall 2021 Semester Lottery will be open from June 14, 2021 through July 31, 2021.

For more information, please contact us at :

Once we receive your registration, you will be contacted to take a placement test. The tests will be given in July and August by appointment only. This DOES NOT mean you have been selected. This is to see what level class would be best for you.

The drawing for the Lottery will be on August 18, 2021. Those who are selected will be contacted by August 23, 2021. If you are not chosen, you will be put on the waiting list. If a space opens up, you may be called in at a later date.
