Let's Learn English!

As we look back and celebrate the accomplishments of our students, teachers and staff this past year, enabled by our generous donors and sponsors, we do so with profound admiration for Pilar Laugel, the founder of our school.


Celebrating 25 years of service, Washington English Center continues its mission – providing English classes, computer instruction, workforce preparation and a variety of support programs to immigrants and refugees.

Learn more about our founder, history, services and the impact we are having on the lives of immigrants in the 2018 Annual Report.
