The Community ESL Program
What classes can I take?
You can take English (ESL) classes for beginning to advanced levels, which include practice in speaking, listening, reading, and writing, as well as grammar and vocabulary. We also have a class called "American Language and Culture" for advanced ESL students and au pairs. Other advanced classes we offer are "Grammar and Writing Bridge" and "Speaking and Pronunciation Bridge".
Finally, we offer a Citizenship class, to help students prepare for the U.S. Citizenship Test.
