Conversational English (Level 1)
The ESL (English as a Second Language) program is established to provide students with the vocabulary and grammatical structures needed for both communicating effectively and everyday living.
Together with the classroom teacher, the ESL teacher develops language acquisition and cognitive academic language skills through the use of many interactive activities.
The ESL program provides the English Language Learner (ELL) the opportunity to grasp the academic, social, and cultural aspects of the English language through this course.
This course introduces new vocabulary in each cycle and presents an opportunity for interacting in English. Many fluency exercises provide role-play activities to practice the new material and increase the opportunity for vibrant fluent conversation.
This 30-hour course is delivered on-site in an instructor-led, classroom setting. Prerequisites include:
- Pre-Intermediate English skill, verbal and written
- Group discussions and role play
