Pre-Upgrading English Language Arts

The Advanced English Language Learning and Pre-Upgrading English Language Arts class focuses on listening, speaking, reading, writing, textual analysis, and dialogue skills. Learners coming from basic ELL classes, or those with interrupted learning, enjoy more challenging non-fiction, fiction, poetry, and drama. In addition to expanding their vocabulary and practicing verbal skills, they learn how to interpret and analyze literature with textual support and expand their writing skills from sentences through to simple essays.
