Why ESL Classes?



    ESL teachers build language with pictures, tactile objects and hands-on activities. Systematic vocabulary and grammar lessons help students connect to a real-world context. Students are flexibly grouped based on needs, abilities and interests. Every lesson includes cooperative activities that allow students to use and practice their newly acquired English skills. The teachers listen to what the kids are trying to communicate and then provide opportunities to expand their language skills. ESL teachers offer students a variety of ways to communicate what they know and are able to do. Authentic language assessments then enable students to demonstrate their learning.
