English as a Second Language (ESL) classes are provided through Central Community College’s Adult Education program.
Our Columbus site provides 6 levels of English instruction for adults. These classes target a student’s verbal communication skills. As their speaking skills improve, reading and writing exercises are included in their instruction. Our goals in teaching English allow students to become more engaged as employees and community members. As the student progresses through the final level of ESL instruction, they are then prepared to enter GED preparation classes or transfer into college classes.
All classes are held twice a week. Morning and evening hours are available.
Orientation is available by appointment on Mondays from 9am-3pm and on Tuesdays from 2pm-6pm.
Orientation consists of filling out required paperwork, doing a paper and an on-line career survey, and at least one of the two pre-assessment. If there is time, the 2nd assessment will be given, or student can make appointment to come back and finish. Once all the requirements are complete, the student can begin classes the next week.
Class level placement is determined by the required pre-assessments:
Level 1 Mondays and Wednesdays 9:00 a.m.- 11:00 a.m. and 6:00pm-8:00pm
Level 2 Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:00 a.m.- 11:00 a.m. and 6:00pm-8:00pm
Level 3 Mondays and Wednesdays 9:00 a.m.- 11:00 a.m. and 6:00pm-8:00pm
Level 4 Mondays and Wednesdays 9:00 a.m.- 11:00 a.m. and 6:00pm-8:00pm
