ESOL Classes

English for Speakers of Other Languages

This program is for Adults aged 18 and older. 

Description of this Class:

This is an integrated course focused on developing the core language skills at the beginning level. Emphasis will be on survival speaking skills, real-life vocabulary, the three main verb tenses, and the integration of these skills:

  • Speaking

  • Listening

  • Grammar/Writing

  • Reading
