All courses are available for adults (17 years and older) who are non-native English speakers. Classes are offered mornings, evenings, and weekends to accommodate busy schedules.
The EL Program operates on a ten-week quarterly schedule twelve months per year, but new students are welcome to enter classes at any time. Beginning and intermediate courses provide instruction and practice in reading, writing, speaking, listening and grammar. Advanced courses provide instruction and practice in college preparatory language skills and in conversation and pronunciation. Most courses range in size from 10 to 20 learners, and all courses are taught entirely in English. Emphasis is given to small group activities so that learners have ample opportunity to practice the language that they are learning.
