English as a Second Language — Diploma Program
The Philosophy of Our ESL Program at our College is that English is best learned when written and oral skills are combined. All classes are taught in a communicative and interactive way incorporating as much cultural content as possible. Thus the student is learning not only the skills needed to achieve the goal of mastering English, but also the appropriate context in which to use it while living in the United States.
