Like any other educational endeavor, ESOL classes have a specific goal in mind. If you are thinking about taking these classes here at Broward Community Schools, this is what you need to know about who can benefit from such courses and what to expect by the end of your time in class.
What is ESOL?
ESOL classes teach “English to speakers of other languages.” This is similar to ESL, or English as a second language, courses, but it’s a broader term. After all, some people taking such classes aren’t learning a second language. They might be learning their third, or even their fourth!
The Goals of ESOL Classes
By the end of their time in ESOL classes, a student can speak, read, and write English at a higher level. This can help improve their job prospects and make other life tasks far easier.
These classes are targeted at people of all backgrounds. Whether your primary language is Spanish, Creole, or Russian, ESOL courses can help you get a better grasp on the English language. Your instructor will work with you to ensure these lessons make a big difference.
Having a better command of English can help students find better jobs. Successful completion of ESOL courses can open up a pathway to more educational opportunities as well. The class schedule is flexible too, and there are courses available at many of our locations.
