International Friends





For more than 40 years International Friends has been building some of the strongest and most unique relationships by teaching English as a second language (ESL).  First Baptist Arlington has a great group of volunteers that help impact our community with their love for internationals.  Read below for details that include the upcoming events, schedule, leadership and ways you can participate.
