English as a Second Language Classes

English as a second language (ESL) classes provide necessary and helpful instruction to individuals looking to improve their language skills. Individualized study plans focus on both oral and written skills, and the classes are designed to promote cross-cultural exchange. ESL classes are designed to assure speedy acquisition of English Language proficiency and assist students with achieving their personal goals. At PWSC, we are dedicated to providing the best ESL services and programs to meet the needs of all our students.

PWSC invested in a new curriculum for English Language Learners (ELL) called Ventures from Cambridge University Press. Ventures provides:

  • Standards-based, integrated-skills series that empowers students to achieve their academic and career goals.
  • An online workbook that gives students the opportunity to learn in class at PWSC and outside the classroom.
  • Responsiveness to needs of both job seekers and employers.
  • Audio support for teaching and assessment of student progress including listening, vocabulary, grammar, reading, and writing.

Extended learning opportunities are also available to prepare individuals to apply for U.S. citizenship.
