English as a Second Language (ESL)

Understanding American Language & Life

Foreign-born adults improve their ability to participate in American life by developing their English language skills and their understanding of American:

  • Life

  • Government

  • History

  • Culture

 

Students may lack any formal education or may be well educated, and they may speak no English at all or be fairly conversational. Many are pursuing U.S. citizenship. They are all striving to integrate more fully into American society by improving their English literacy and civics skills.
