ESL CURRICULUM

Both of our campuses offer carefully structured ESL classes at three levels: beginning, intermediate, and advanced. Classes cover:

  • Reading and Phonics
  • Grammar
  • Vocabulary Development
  • Writing
  • Speaking and Listening
  • Conversation
  • Note-taking (advanced level)

At each proficiency level, students are assigned to classes suited to their abilities. Transition classes offer students a chance to practice English skills as they move into college preparatory subjects. These classes include:

  • Art History, Music, Film
  • Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry
  • Area Studies, American Culture, Education
  • Life Science

Field trips and computer classes supplement all subjects. In addition, ESL students are encouraged to participate in Southwestern varsity teams or recreational sports.
