ESL is a program for adults who do not speak English as their first language. The program focuses on the four language competencies: reading, writing, speaking and listening. Class sizes are small and computer-assisted learning is included.
Resident immigrants or refugees who are 19 or older. Those on student or tourist visas are not eligible.
There's a $25 registration fee per quarter (approximately eleven weeks). Tuition waivers are available for financially eligible students.
Day and evening classes are available Monday through Thursday. Students can switch between day and evening classes when work or personal schedule changes happen.
New students must complete the four-day student success class before registering for ESL classes. Call or visit the Adult Basic Education office to find information on the next student success class.
