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.

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

We are reopening class sites in person, and we have limited virtual options.

Register for classes by completing the form to the right or call 844-322-4235 for more information. We will send you an email with more information about orientation.

Face masks are required to enter any ECC facilities. The College is following CDC guidelines.

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
