English As A Second Language
Currently there are no ESL classes due to Covid-19. Please check back later to see if classes have resumed.
CRS provides classes in practical English for adults, with the goal of helping newly arrived refugees navigate their new home. Lower levels include topics such as greetings, basic conversational language structures, the calendar, numbers, and health, with an emphasis on vocabulary-building.
Higher units of study include language for everyday needs, such as language needed in the grocery store, bank, post office and doctor’s office, and how to navigate housing and transportation.
Curriculum: Confidence and Connections from Intercambio.org, Levels 1-6.
Classes and Times
Depending on registration needs, classes are held Monday through Thursday in the mornings and early afternoons. Classes are typically held two or three times a week for a total of about 3 hours a week. In addition, those enrolled in classes are invited to participate in weekly conversation classes. Classes are taught in 6-, 7-, or 8-week terms.
Classes are limited to about 10 students.
Students pay a $10 supply fee each term.
Child Care: We are unable to provide care for the children of ESL students.
We ask that students please make their own arrangements in this area.
