ACE: Adult English for Speakers of Other Languages

CLICK HERE FOR PLACEMENT TESTING AND REGISTRATION INFORMATION

Placement Testing is required of all new students.

General Information

Every year, immigrants and refugees coming to the United States are confronted with the immediate challenges of living in a new culture and using a new language. The adjustment to the new country and culture is especially difficult for adults who have little or no knowledge of English.

The Adult ESOL program offers English classes at several levels of proficiency to foreign born adults learning English as a new language. Classes prepare adults to function in English in the community as students, workers, parents and citizens.

Classes serve not only as a place to learn English, but also to disseminate information to the students in a comprehensible fashion about parenting and schooling, working in the United States, living in a democracy, continuing education, being consumers, accessing community services, etc.

Advanced and Special Classes

Placement testing is not required for some of these classes. Please see each description for the testing requirements. All registrations must be received one week prior to the start date to guarantee book delivery to the first class session.

Advanced and Special Interest ESOL classes will only be offered during our ten-week terms. They will not be offered during the summer session. See registration options.

English in the Workplace

English in the Workplace offers resources for managing a diverse workplace and providing job-related English instruction to speakers of other languages.
