English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL/ELA)

English for Speakers of Other Languages  (ESOL) classes
are designed for foreign-born, non-English speaking adults and those whose first language is not English. The classes
are focused on improving English skills for jobs, continuing education, enhanced involvement with children's
education, and citizenship preparation. 

There are four components to our classroom instruction - speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Our classes are divided into beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels.  During registration, students are given an assessment that will determine their placement in the most appropriate class. 

Pre-GED and GED

Pre-GED classes are designed to provide basic skills instruction for adults, 18 and older, whose math and reading skills have been assessed at or below the GED® readiness level. Many adults enroll in Pre-GED with a long-term goal
of the GED® exam; however, they may need the basic
skills instruction of ABE to be ready for the GED®
test-preparation course.

General Educational Development (GED®) Preparation classes are designed to prepare adult students, 18 and older, for the GED® high school equivalency exam. Generally, students must demonstrate reading, writing, and math skills above the 8th grade level to be properly enrolled in the GED® review course. This course prepares students for the four subject area tests of the GED® battery: Reasoning through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science, and Social Studies. Textbooks and internet based materials are available for use in the classroom and at home.
