English Language Studies (ELS)

NEW - Online Registration Available

IMPORTANT NOTICE: As part of the ongoing effort to limit the community spread of COVID-19, all English Language Studies courses have been moved online.

ELS classes are available in levels 1 - 6 to give students an understanding of the basics of the English language.

The goal of the program is to help speakers of other languages achieve a level of English proficiency to function better in everyday living, enter a job training program, improve performance in current jobs, and/or pursue other goals.

Advanced ELS students who are interested in job training or college classes may consider free classes in the CCRI Bridge program to develop pre-college academic skills.

All summer classes are online!

This summer, the ELS program instructors will offer classes online to keep everyone safe and healthy. You can continue making progress with your English and gain the fluency you need. If you have not studied online before, we can show you how!

Available courses include levels 1-6 (beginner to advanced) and conversation classes. 

New students can register for level 1 (beginner) or take a level assessment to determine which class level is best for you.
