Adult English as a Second Language (AESL) Non-Credit Program

The Adult English as a Second Language (AESL) program is an intensive, non-credit English language program that provides non-native English speakers with English language instruction to meet their vocational, community, personal, and academic goals. The curriculum consists of integrated listening, speaking, reading, and writing language skills; a focus on U.S. culture, civics, and media literacy; and workforce English skills. The program is comprised of an organized sequence of five courses, starting with the low-beginning level and progressing to the low-advanced level. AESL also offers skill courses that include beginning/intermediate/advanced pronunciation and conversation as well as American idioms, introduction to computers, professional communication, English for parents of elementary and high school children, English for child development, workforce English (English for professional communication, English for career search, and English for job success), and United States citizenship test preparation.
