This program provides opportunities for students to reach their language goals, such as understanding, speaking, reading and writing the English language. Students will become more integrated into society by learning about American culture, customs and the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. These non-credit classes are designed for the non-native speaker of English. They will help students develop skills to meet the basic needs of independent daily living, as well as to prepare for additional levels of ESL courses.

Testing and Instruction

Students begin their program by completing an English language pre-assessment. This assessment will allow us to design an educational plan that best fits each student's needs.

Instruction consists of the following:
  • instructor-led classes
  • group discussions
  • individual and group work
  • reading newspapers
  • watching videos
  • field trips in the community
  • computer lab assignments
  • Career Pathways
  • PowerPath screenings
At the Laramie Campus, the TLC computer lab is available for students use with a variety of ESL computer programs. These programs include The Oxford Picture Dictionary and Rosetta Stone.
