What are ESL Classes?

Though America does not have an official language, it can be a difficult country to navigate without the ability to comprehend English. Individuals who are looking to transition into American culture, or are looking to improve their language skills to pursue further career opportunities, can be helped immensely by enrolling in an English as a Second Language program.

At Goodwin College, we believe everyone should have access to a quality education. We believe that you should have the chance to succeed, no matter where you’ve been or where you plan to go. And through our comprehensive ESL program in CT, Goodwin can help students transition into English culture.

The objective of our stand-alone ESL program is to enhance the English-language proficiency of individuals who have pre-existing vocational knowledge, training, or skill, but cannot use that knowledge, training, or skill because of their English speaking deficiency.

The goals of the program are to improve your proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing English; to expand your knowledge of American customs and culture; to provide a foundation in academic English to help you advance to college-level classes; and to sharpen your job-readiness English skills in order to move up in your career.

Goodwin’s ESL program involves small class sizes and personal attention in full-immersion classes. The best way to teach a diverse student population another language is to fully immerse them in that language, from the time they enter the classroom to the time they walk out the door. And with classes starting six times a year, and ESL courses available to most students at little to no cost, it’s never too late to start!
