The goal of our ESL program is to improve the students’ level of English proficiency. ESL classes teach different language skills, depending on students’ English abilities, interests, and needs. Our program focuses on the following: conversational English, grammar, reading, listening comprehension, writing, and vocabulary. Our program features small groups of 3-5 for individualized attention. Together with the classroom teacher, the ESL teacher develops language acquisition and cognitive academic language skills through the use of sound instructional techniques. The ESL program provides the English Language Learner (ELL) the opportunity to grasp the academic, social, and cultural aspects of the English language through the teaching of reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
