Adult Education and Language Learning Programs

Languages and Learning supports the individual literacy and learning goals of Philadelphia's adults.

Led by a commitment to community engagement, Languages and Learning strives to provide exceptional customer service to adult learners in a welcoming, accessible environment.

Languages and Learning serves as the Free Library of Philadelphia's center for adult education resources, connecting patrons seeking Adult Basic Education (ABE), English Language Learner (ELL), and World Language instruction to the appropriate services. We offer online GED ® and HiSET ® courses through the Essential Education platform, run language learning and conversation circles, offer tutoring services, and more.
