ESL - English as a Second Language

 
Achieving good English language skills is a natural response to the higher aspirations of today’s adult learners. CCM’s English Language Learning program equips students with the grammar and skills they need to both access community resources and to develop a foundation for long term career and academic success.

CCM’s English Language Learning program is a non-credit program designed to prepare students to communicate effectively in a multi-faceted society. Progress through levels will be measured by an approved standardized test or documentation of attainment of competencies. Students will progress through the performance standards sequentially. Instructors will present topic-centered lessons that integrate skills from several areas. The program includes classroom activities and materials which will appeal to students with a variety of learning styles and which incorporate the previous knowledge and experience of the learners.

These courses are designed for non-native speakers who wish to improve their English conversational skills. These classes explore all aspects of the English language, through group and class discussion, dialogue, and pronunciation practice, as well as vocabulary and grammar. Emphasis is on practical every day English and communication skills. Instruction is offered at multiple levels to provide English instruction from Basic to Advanced students. Since proper placement is important, we urge you to attend the placement testing. Placement testing is free. See brochure for actual dates and times.
