English for Speakers of Other Languages

MCTC’s ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) courses have both a professional staff and a proven curriculum with extensive resources including a computer-based language classroom and the MCTC Learning Center. The Learning Center offers tutoring, study groups and basic computer skills assistance for ESOL students.

The ESOL Curriculum offers intensive English training in writing, reading and listening/speaking. These classes help prepare students to be admitted to and to be successful in subsequent college courses. In addition, the Continuing Education and Customized Training program at MCTC arranges ESOL classes for special purposes in the local community.

How can you prepare for your ESOL classes? Writing, reading and listening/speaking is skills that only get better with practice. Reading is a very good way to begin. It improves your understanding of written English, it makes grammar and usage familiar and it increases your vocabulary. Develop the habit of reading in English to get a head start in ESOL.
