English as Second Language

English as a Second Language (ESL) focuses on providing instruction to non-English speaking students in need of English acquisition for employment and to continue their education in the United States.  The course introduces the students to the fundamentals of the English Language with emphasis on speaking and comprehension.  Students are exposed to a variety of learning experiences essentials to daily life in the United States.  The course also provides students with exposure to the social and cultural life in the US, such as greetings, introductions, and forms of address. After each classroom lesson there is an opportunity for the students to review and reinforce the concepts presented through the use of ESL software set up in the computer lab. Post testing occurs at the end of each cycle of instruction, and students can advance to other levels English instruction, to Adult Basic Educational classes, Occupational Training or remain at the same level depending on their individual test results.
