Class descriptions and schedules  

ELS Schedule Fall 2021

ELS classes 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.  

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 and/or prepare for the GED exams.
