The English for Speakers of Other Languages program is designed to offer low-cost classes to adults with limited English language abilities. Students will work on skills in speaking, listening, reading, and writing in English.
After taking the CASAS placement test, students are able to begin taking classes at one of our six skill levels. Our highly qualified, certified teachers help students learn to live and work in an English-speaking country. Before completing the program, students have the opportunity to test their progress and earn a certificate. Advisors are also available to assist students in choosing their next step toward a career path.
West Area Adult School offers a free preschool program on their main campus. The Pre-School and Family Literacy Program is eligible to the children (ages 3-5) of adult students enrolled full-time.
