Welcome to Small World

English Language Classes Resumed in January, 2022!
New and Returning Students Welcome

Our spring classes and student enrollment began Jan. 18 and the semester continues through May 5. For information, please e-mail swlawrence68@gmail.com.

Small World semesters coincide with the KU academic calendar. No classes are held during the summer. Information for the Fall 2022 semester will be posted soon.

Important Time Change

Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00-2:30 pm.
(Small World no longer meets in the morning as in the past. Our host, the First Presbyterian Church, has expanded its child care program and needs to use all of the classrooms during the morning hours.)

Our Program

Small World is for WOMEN ONLY. We no longer have a children’s program. Small World gives women the opportunity to learn or improve their English skills as you meet and socialize with International and American women.


Women may enroll at any time during the semester, subject to availability. Classes are taught at beginning, intermediate and advanced levels by experienced, English-speaking teachers. All classes are taught by women. Students are moved to the next level when the teacher feels the student has achieved the ability to proceed.


Students enrolling or returning for this session will pay $15.00.
Students may not attend class until they have paid their tuition. Small World has fewer classes than in the past. Class size may be limited.

Safety Rules for Attendance

For everyone’s safety, all students and teachers are required to follow these new rules:

  • Wear a mask at all times in the building.
  • Enter though the East door.
  • Have your temperature checked when you enter the building.
  • Use hand sanitizer when entering the building.
  • Do not bring in any food or drink from outside.
  • Wear your nametag while in the building.

We hope everyone is in good health and excited to begin the Spring 2022 semester!
