Educational Programs

English for Speakers of Other Languages


MCTC’s ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes will provide you the intensive English training in writing, reading, listening and speaking that you need to be successful in the rest of your college courses.

Your education will include learning in a computer-based language classroom with professional staff and helpful resources like the MCTC Learning Center. The Learning Center can help you with tutoring, study groups and basic computer skills. In addition, the Continuing Education and Customized Training program at MCTC arranges  classes for special purposes in the local community.

How can you prepare for your ESOL classes? Writing, reading, listening and speaking are 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.
