The Evangel Exchange is a free, weekly, English class & conversation-practice program hosted by volunteers from Evangel Bible Church of Berkeley. Our students are mainly visiting scholars (or family members of those scholars), but our classes are open to anyone who wants to improve their English!

All Levels
We have Youth, Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced classes. All ages and levels welcome!
Free Child Care
If you have toddlers or children, bring them with you! We have free child care on site.
Free Lunch
Stick around after class and enjoy some free lunch with the volunteers and other students.

Upcoming Classes & Cafes

Here are the dates of future classes & cafes! All are held in the second floor of our church at 1343 Hopkins Street in Berkeley.

*CLASSES are structured times to go over a planned lesson (see sample).
CAFES are informal times to just chat over some tea and snacks, and maybe even play some games. *Childcare is provided only for CLASSES
