ABOUT THE PROGRAM

CCM’s English Language Learning (ELL) program provides English language instruction for limited English proficient adults to increase their ability to communicate in English. The content is compatible with principles of language acquisition for adult learners of English and includes skills useful in the workplace, life and academics. The goal of ELL is to improve a student’s knowledge and comfort level with English communication.

 

Early Beginner, Beginner and Intermediate levels are made up of three units (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3) that allow the learner to logically progress and build upon new knowledge. Students remain in a class level for several sessions to assure mastery of all of the concepts and content that will successfully transition the student to the next level. There is one book specific to each class level and students will work through the book. Advanced level students will improve English language mastery, using skills that are critical to the workplace or future academic studies. The ELL program at CCM has something for everyone whose first language is not English. A student’s ability, confidence and success will grow with each level of learning.

 

Skills are integrated into reading, writing, speaking and listening formats. Progress through levels is measured by an approved standardized test or documentation of attainment of competencies. The CCM ELL program course curriculum conforms to the federally defined Workforce Development ESL levels, and certificates are available in Early Beginner, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced Level and TOEFL.

 

The CCM ELL program includes an online learning component called MyEnglishLab. MyEnglishLab provides practice exercises and language learning tasks that students either complete in the CCM Computer Lab or at home. All practice activities taken from the MyEnglishLab are coordinated with each book.
