English Language Acquisition

The English Language Acquisition classes provide students with a working knowledge of English in preparation for citizenship tests, the workplace, additional education, and daily living. Due to the COVID19 restrictions on public gatherings, we are currently hosting classes online. You can access the courses from a computer, tablet or smart phone. You may also contact us via chat.

To find out more about our workplace course, please visit https://www.eastcentral.edu/ael/workplace-essentials-certificate/

Our classes include both English language skills instruction and civics/citizenship education.

Classes are currently provided online only, but we plan to return to the classrooms in August.

Register for classes by completing the form to the right or call 844-322-4235 for more information.

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
