Classes are conducted in small classroom style to allow students the chance to receive individual attention from their instructor and tutors. Students studying English will also participate in cultural and social activities in the community. Students take the class with a range of experience; some students need help preparing to enter college. Others are looking to improve their English for travel, and for social or employment purposes.

English Language Acquisition classes can improve a student’s skills in:

  • Conversational English
  • Grammar
  • Reading
  • Listening Comprehension
  • Writing
  • Vocabulary
