Level Classes

In each level class, you will learn integrated English skills such as listening, speaking, reading, writing, and grammar. Our Beginning / Multi-Level 1 classes focus primarily on conversation while our Advanced classes help students develop their writing skills for work or continuing education. Individual and group projects and presentations will help you further develop and apply your language skills. Each level class administers CASAS reading and listening tests to document your progress in learning English. Level classes meet for 6-8 hours per week.
