ESL Classes

What is ESL?
ESL stands for English as a Second Language and means that the program uses English as the instructional language. Adult learners are exposed to a learning environment that is “risk free” and interactive, and one where instruction is always presented in a meaningful context.  Classes are usually taught at 3 phrases: Level – beginner, Level 2 – intermediate, and Level 3 - advanced.
