Welcome to Small World!

Small World Classes Will Resume in Fall 2021
New Student and Returning Student Enrollment

We will determine class placement for new and returning students beginning September 7. Returning students should contact us to let us know that you plan to return. We look forward to greeting new students!
First day of classes and enrollment: Tuesday, Sept. 7, 2021 at 1:00 pm

Important Time Change

Classes will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00-2:30 pm.
Small World will no longer meet in the morning. 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.


Enrollment is based on availability. 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 without slowing down the next class.


$20.00 per semester or $35.00 per year is due in order to enroll.
Students may not attend class until they have paid their tuition. There may still be a possibility that social distancing will be in effect for the fall semester, plus Small World will have fewer classes than in the past. We anticipate that class size may be limited.

Please note: Small World classes did not continue after March 5, 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. All returning Small World students who were enrolled during the spring 2020 semester DO NOT NEED TO PAY AGAIN for the fall 2021 semester.

Small World semesters coincide with the KU academic calendar. There are no classes during the summer. 

We hope everyone is in good health and excited to begin the fall 2021 semester. It will be wonderful to meet face-to-face again!
