English as a Second Language
At The Education Exchange, we understand the challenges that face our students whose native language is not English. Our classes range from beginner to advanced to meet the needs of all of our ESL students, making it easier for them to communicate effectively in the workplace and in their community.
Our goal with our ESL classes is to empower students with more confidence and understanding of the English language by developing English language skills including:
- About half of Rhode Island adult learners are in ESL programs.
- Roughly 34,921 working age adults in Rhode Island have limited English skills, or none at all.
The curriculum of this course also incorporates cultural and civics study to encourage participation in the community and prepare for a US citizenship Exam, if that is desired.
Assessment & Testing: $50
Standard Tuition: $75
The Education Exchange offers some programs free of charge for participants who qualify through the Department of Labor and Training. Call for details.Financial assistance and payment plan options are available.
