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