English Language Learning (ELL)
The English Language Learning (ELL) program offers classes for adult immigrants and refugees during the fall semester and spring semester; each semester is 16 weeks.
The seven-level English Language Learning program, ranging from pre-literacy to advanced, provides instruction on life skills, college and career readiness, citizenship, employability skills, financial literacy, family literacy, and digital literacy. Our classes integrate all skills, including reading, writing, listening, speaking, pronunciation, and grammar.
The classes are free, however, students need to purchase class material for $29.
Punctual and regular attendance is absolutely necessary for success and also in order to take the required test at the end of the semester. You are required to be on time and attend classes every day.
Free Citizenship classes are offered to currently enrolled English Language Learning students.
