Advanced Noncredit ESL

Award Type: Certificate of Completion

<p>Noncredit English as a Second Language certificates are designed for non-native English speaking students who want to effectively read, write, listen to, and speak the English language. These skills will help students to bridge the gap from survival communication skills to adequate competency for functioning in an English-speaking work and school environment. They also help students to transition to the college credit ESL program to pursue credit classes as needed to obtain an associate degree and/or jobs that require higher-level English communication skills. An ESL Computer Language Lab complements the classroom instruction and provides an opportunity to practice English skills using computer software. Classes and lab use are free.</p><p></p><p></p><p></p>
