Dear English Language Learners,

Welcome to the Haggerty English Language Program, simply known as HELP. This is why we are here at the State University of New York at New Paltz (SUNY New Paltz). We want to help you to improve your English language skills.

Our program has four levels, each designed to fit your language needs. You will make good progress in reading, writing, listening, speaking and pronunciation.

Our professors of English as a New Language are highly qualified, experienced and helpful to all students. At the end of the program, you will earn a Certificate of English Language Proficiency.

You will also meet many new students from different countries, all here to learn American English with you. Our classrooms are like the United Nations, which you can even visit while you are here. New York City is only 90 minutes away!

Apply now and come join us in our safe community. #YouAreWelcomeHere

Sincerely yours,

Connie Perdreau
Director of Haggerty English Language Program
