Adult English Language Learners (ELL) Program
The English Language Learners (ELL) program is designed for adult learners wanting to improve their English language skills. Classes emphasize the fundamentals of grammar, conversational skills, listening comprehension, vocabulary, and writing ability. The program also exposes students to a variety of American customs and cultural traditions. Our ELL programs are conveniently designed to provide blended instruction through face‐to‐face and digital instruction.
Students enrolling in the Adult English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) course may have secondary or postsecondary degree(s) and/or credential(s) from another country or the U.S. Eligible students are those who:
· Are age 16 years or older and are not required to be enrolled in the K12 school system
