Small World Lawrence is a non-profit that provides English language instruction for international women who are NOT enrolled at KU. Small World is operated entirely by women volunteers and has existed since 1968.

Small World invites international women to take part in a fun, comfortable environment where they can:

  • Improve their English skills
  • Adjust to the Lawrence community
  • Learn about American culture and customs
  • Form lasting friendships

Small World Classes

Classes are taught by experienced English-speaking teachers at three different levels: beginning, intermediate and advanced. All classes are taught by women. Students advance at their own pace.

Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00-2:30 pm, and follow the KU academic calendar for fall and spring. There are no classes during the summer.

KU students are not eligible to attend our English classes but are welcome to join Small World as volunteers.

Enrollment and Tuition
Women may enroll at any time during the semester. Tuition of $20.00 per semester or $35.00 per year is due at enrollment.
