English as a Second Language

Instruction is designed for adults with limited English proficiency or whose native language is

not English. English as a Second Language (ESL) programs assist individuals in improving their English skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing to find or maintain employment, attain citizenship, become more involved with their children’s schooling, and make greater use of community resources. Instruction is provided in English as a unifying means of serving the broad ethnic diversity of limited-English-speaking adults.

This is a monthly newsletter geared towards providing targeted resources for ESL teachers to support them both in incorporating them in their classrooms and to provide resources to further their knowledge and skillset in best practices with Multilingual Learners
