English as Second Language
Fall classes for ESL (10 am) and GED (noon) will start on Saturday the 13th of September, but you can join any Saturday.
ESL has three levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. The beginning and intermediate levels will use the Exploring English textbooks. The advanced level will use Economical Writing by Deirdre McCloskey. Economical Writing is “the best short guide to academic prose,” pointed and entertaining. High school and college students and anyone who wants to improve in technical writing are welcome to attend the advanced class.
The GED class (noon until 1:15) is wandering through selected topics to develop math literacy. Current topics include algebra (solving linear equations) and trigonometry (working with angles). High school and college students and anyone who wants to improve in math literacy are welcome to attend.
