English as a Second Language (ESL)

 

Whether you just arrived or even if you have been here for more than 20 years, Lake Osborne would like to “Welcome you to America.”

We know that life can be difficult here if you do not speak English well, so we would like to help you learn to speak English better. To help you gain some proficiency in the language, we will begin offering classes every Wednesday evening from 6:30- 8:10 p.m.

These classes will be divided by fluency level.  We have classes from very low beginner level through an advanced level.  We use the same curriculum that most community colleges use. 

Which Class is right for you?

Once you arrive our teachers will asses your needs and place you in one of our classes:

  • Beginners – For those who speak little or no English.
  • Intermediate – For those who know just enough English to get by.
  • Advanced – For those who want to improve vocabulary, pronunciation, learn idioms and feel more comfortable expressing themselves at work, school, and home.           

 How much does it cost?

The classes are free.  The books you will need can be purchased for a one time fee of $25.
