English as a Second Language

English as a Second Language program provides a challenging, caring, and supportive environment for high quality and comprehensive instruction in English at a reasonable cost and prepares students for success in academic classes. 

Curriculum Description

The curriculum for our English as a Second Language program is geared toward students whose English language ability ranges from high beginner to advanced. The goal of our curriculum is to create a program in which students are exposed to the language in manageable, yet progressive steps that advance their language learning without presenting information that is too difficult and overwhelming for their learning stage. The objectives are clear and measurable and will fully prepare the students for participating in academic and social situations. Each Spring and Fall semester consists of two eight-week terms, and each Summer semester consists of one eight-week term.

*UNA ESL does not offer classes at the beginner level. New students are expected to have basic knowledge of English even when beginning the program in level 1 classes. 

Typical Schedule 

*All classes meet Monday through Friday.
