Want to learn English but no time for a class? This is a good option for you! Using the popular software, Burlington English and other learning tools, we offer English language instruction as an independent study course. You can practice grammar, listening, speaking, reading and writing at home. Requirements for this course include internet access and a headset with earphones to listen and a microphone to record on.  A desktop or laptop computer is preferred. Students will communicate regularly with the teacher, via email or Zoom, by appointment during office hours. Space is limited in this course. 

For all classes: New students must attend an ESL orientation (Click here to make an appointment). After that, you will be contacted by the teacher to begin class.
