International Friends

Welcome!

International Friends offers help and friendship to our international neighbors. All nationalities are welcome. We offer many classes and activities in easy English, especially for international adults and children. One of our staff members speaks Japanese, and we have the ability to translate materials into Japanese, Korean, German, and Spanish when needed.

All the staff and team members are eagerly waiting to welcome our new friends and see our old friends again. We are so happy you will be with us. Have you arrived in America recently? Do you need information or some kind of assistance to begin your life here? Please call at 248-624-7676 ext.115 if we can help you in any way.
