English language

If English is not your first language, learning English can be difficult.  Not learning English can also be difficult. We can help! We offer classes in English as a Second Language (ESL) at six levels to help you learn to speak, listen, read and write in English so  you can communicate with confidence!

This level is for students who have little-to-no English speaking ability.  Instruction focuses on oral communication skills of listening and speaking.

This level is for students who can function in a very limited way in situations related to 

immediate need.  Instruction focuses on letters, numbers and basic sight words.
