English as a Second Language

what is esl & citizenship program?

English as a Second Language (ESL) students interested in citizenship can start preparing for the citizenship interview and test now. Review important facts about American history and government. Learn about American culture and geography and how to complete the N-400 application for citizenship as well as practice answering questions for the citizenship exam. One-on-one oral practice tests will be given before the naturalization interview.

Our ESL program focuses on helping students improve listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in English so that they can communicate better in the community and prepare for post-secondary education or career training.

Career Technical Education (CTE) courses are also available for ESL students.
