DESCRIPTION:  American English language instruction for adults of all nations. Students are taught to understand and use American accented English. This is not a basic course. Students should have some knowledge or ability in English. There are no textbooks, no formal grammar lessons, no vocabulary drills.  However, grammar and vocabulary are taught through conversing, listening and reading.  Attention is also given to reducing the student’s accent and putting words in the right order. Class also includes information about American customs and beliefs, holidays, and government.  Students are expected to practice at home by watching American news broadcasts, weekly programs, and movies.


There is no child care available, but there is a playroom close to the ESL room. Babies and preschool children are welcome if they do not disrupt the class.


TIME:  Tuesday, Wednesday, & Friday, 10:00 – 11:30 A.M.
