English as a Second Language Courses Begin in February
Registration is now open to the community for non-credit English as a Second Language (ESL) classes at Lake Michigan College.
Courses will run February 4 through April 17 on LMC’s Benton Harbor campus.
Students will learn about U.S. culture and American English language through instruction in speaking, listening, reading and writing, as well as field trips throughout Berrien County. At the end of a class, students will be prepared to use their new language skills socially, in the workplace or to prepare for further study at LMC.
Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced level classes are available in the evening and day. Non-native English speakers over the age of 18 are welcome regardless of visa status or previous language training. Course instructors have master’s degrees in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) and at least five years of experience teaching English to adults.
“Based on the popularity and success of our Fall 2018 Community ESL classes at LMC, we’re thrilled to continue these much-needed language classes in our community. What’s especially exciting for us is that we're now able to offer more hours of instruction and hold skills-specific classes in our spring offerings! We look forward to seeing returning students and welcoming new ones in February,” said Director of ESL, Monique Yoder.
Most courses are ten-weeks long with two class sessions per week. An 8-week “Conversation and Culture” and 4-week “Email Writing” class are also available. Classes are scheduled either Mondays and Wednesdays, or Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. or 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., depending on which class a student takes.
