Adult Education offers English language instruction in listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

At orientation, students are tested, then placed into classes with students who have similar abilities in English. Levels range from basic beginning to advanced.

Classroom instruction is based around cultural and life skills in the USA.  Upon completion of the ESL program, students may then move into Adult Basic Education for high school equivalency (GED®) classes.
