ESL Community Program

Next opportunity to enroll in the ESL Community classes will be Winter Quarter 2021.  Information about Winter 2021 class schedule will be available in the after November  15, 2020.

This program offers classes in English to non-native speakers in the local community.  People from a variety of backgrounds choose to study in our Community Program:  Au Pairs, immigrants, L-2 visa holders, H-4 visa holders, permanent residents, and students on F-1 visas.  Each class has a short description but is unique from quarter to quarter.  The classes are designed to provide instruction in a particular skill (grammar, conversation, vocabulary, etc.) but students and teachers work together to shape the class to meet the needs, interests, and levels of the majority.  These classes are cost-effective and meet only a few times a week for a few hours a day.  The majority of the classes are one quarter in duration (i.e. about 10 weeks.)  To view class schedule, please go to #2, and click on the link.
