Adult English Literacy (ELA)

You are important to our college and community. We can help you learn basic English to prepare for a better job, help your children with their homework, or become U.S. Citizens.

The Adult English Literacy/Non-native Literacy Program teaches English to adults with less than nine years of education in their native countries. There are 5 levels of NNL classes:

  • 001 Beginning ESL Literacy
  • 002 High Beginning ESL
  • 003 Low Intermediate ESL
  • 004 Intermediate ESL

There are also special classes such as citizenship preparation, employment skills, vocabulary and conversation.
