► ESL Community Program

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, spouses of L-2 visa holders, H-4 visa holders, permanent residents, students on F-1 visas and so on.  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.)
