ESL classes are typically offered in the morning or evening for adult students
  • Beginner ESL – Beginner classes are for those who speak little or no English. These classes focus on basic conversational English speaking and reading skills needed for survival.

Adults who complete a beginner program can move up to intermediate programs, which include instruction in English grammar and reading.
  • Intermediate – Intermediate programs are designed for adults who have good speaking skills, but who may need help with reading and writing in English.
