ESL - English as a Second Language

In September 2009, ABC Learn expanded its services to include a free Adult ESL course to promote family literacy. The Adult ESL course is designed to help adults improve reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills in English. The program also focuses on pronunciation, so individuals can better communicate with English speakers. By improving the literacy of parents in our community, we hope to positively influence the literacy of their children as well.

The Adult ESL class meets one day a week for 2 hours for 12 weeks.
 Fall Session: September-December
 Winter Session: January-March
 Spring Session: April-June

The classes take place at the ABC Learn office. Currently, we offer classes in the mornings and evenings.

Classes are offered in a small group format (4-8 people) so adults can receive more individualized attention.

We have four levels of classes and a conversation class.
~Low Beginner
~High Beginner
~Intermediate
~Intermediate 2

Individuals who complete each class are able to advance to the next level. Only students who complete the Intermediate 2 class are eligible to participate in our conversation class.

Topics we cover:
 Family
 Hobbies/Sports
 Shopping
 Seeing a doctor
 Dining in restaurants
 School life: how to schedule an appointment to speak with a child's teacher.
 Transportation and Travel: how to ask and give directions.
 Financial Literacy: banking, savings and checking accounts, interest, loans and how to prepare a budget.
 Job Preparation : how to fill out a job application, write a resume and tips for job interviews.

Each person who successfully completes each class will receive
• A certificate of completion from ABC Learn, Inc.
• A free book for themselves and for their children.

ABC requires that each person take a FREE 45 minute assessment to determine their listening, speaking, reading, and writing abilities in English.
