English Classes

The IFC provides free classes for you to practice your English! We offer a variety of classes: casual conversation, grammar study, music and lyrics, cooking, and television shows. Come join friends, have some free tea and coffee, and relax as you practice your English. We want your experience to be fun and enjoyable because we believe that’s the best way to learn English and about the United States!

We periodically sent updates about our classes. Sign up on our Mailing List if you are interested in getting emails from us.

For more information, please see the Schedule of Classes.

Bible Study

We currently have a Bible study every Wednesday at 4PM. Our studies consist of reading scripture and discussing study questions. We have also done some video studies as well. You don’t have to be a Christian to join us! If you’re curious about Christianity or just want an opportunity to practice English, come join us! We encourage everyone to join so that we can all learn more from each other.

Cultural Activities and Events

We also host multiple activities each month. Some are free and some have a small cost. You can learn more about Madison and the American culture and lifestyle. Some of our activities include:

  • Weekends in the country with at an American home
  • Thanksgiving turkey dinner
  • Christmas party and dinner
  • July 4th barbecue and fireworks
  • Kayaking
  • Strawberry and Apple picking
  • Pumpkin Carving

You must subscribe to our Mailing List to receive information about our events.

When you sign up for our activities, we ask that you please be sure that you can attend the activity and do not just reserve a spot just in case you are free that day. If you do need to cancel, please let us know in advance so that we can let someone else join the activity in your place. We want as many people to enjoy the activities as possible. If you cancel and we cannot replace your spot, that’s a lost opportunity to share the activity with someone. Please be considerate of this when you sign up!
