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.
How can I register for classes?
Come to the Community ESL office, on CCA's Lowry Campus, during registration times in order to sign up for classes.
When does the next class term start?
We have classes starting in January, April, July, and October. You must register before classes begin, at one of the registration times
How much do classes cost?
English classes for beginner through high intermediate levels cost $180 for the 10-week term (four hours of class per week). The American Language and Culture classes cost $250 for 10 weeks (five hours of class per week). The Grammar & Writing Bridge and Speaking & Pronunciation Bridge classes cost *$60* for 60 hours of class in 10 weeks thanks to the AEFLA grant. The cost for Citizenship classes is only *$30* thanks to a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) grant.
When do classes meet?
You can choose to take Monday and Wednesday OR Tuesday and Thursday classes, and you can choose a morning or evening schedule. In general, morning classes meet 9:30 to 11:30 AM and evening classes meet 6:30 to 8:30 PM. We also have Saturday classes, which meet from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. All classes have at least one morning and one evening option.
