Students in a classroom

English as a Second Language

  • We offer classes for adults whose first language is not English. Students in beginning classes learn to speak, listen to understand, read, and write English. Intermediate and advanced students have the opportunity to improve conversation, grammar, pronunciation, reading, and writing.

    Other classes include:

    • U.S. Government and History
    • Citizenship
    • TOEFL

    Conversation Class/Independent Study/Citizenship - Fall and Spring Only

    Students learn to become contributing members of American society, participate in group conversation, and enhance their English language skills.  Naturalization and driver's license test prep are also offered.  Conversation Classes/Independent Study/Citizenship are available virtually Monday-Wednesday from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. Students must register for an ESL class before they can attend this class. Only qualified students will be admitted.

    TOEFL Preparation - Fall and Spring Only

    Students wishing to study for the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) exam may attend a virtual preparation class every Thursday from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.  Students must register for an ESL class before they can attend a TOEFL class. Only qualified students will be admitted.
