Continuing Education ESL Classes

English for Speakers of Other Languages

Continuing Education (CE) ESL / ESOL courses give students the knowledge and skills they need to become successful English language speakers. The integrated skills courses are designed with competency-based lessons covering everyday topics such as school, business, financial literacy, community services, work, health, and emergencies. CE ESOL students will improve their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills and will gain confidence when communicating with other English speakers. CE offers two types of ESOL programs: The ESOL for Workforce Professionals and the Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) program. Both programs are designed for the true beginner up to the advanced student.
