ESL/ELAA Classes

Central Arizona College offers FREE ESL (English as a Second Language) classes throughout Pinal County. The classes are funded in part through the Department of Education’s Adult Education Grant (Title II of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), and are designed to help English language learners improve upon the four basic communication skills – listening, speaking, reading, and writing – with the purpose of:

  1. assisting adults to obtain the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and economic self-sufficiency;
  2. assisting adults who are parents to obtain the education and skills needed to participate successfully in the educational development of their children and improve the economic opportunities of the family;
  3. assisting immigrants and other individuals who are English language learners in acquiring an understanding of the American system of government, individual freedom, and the responsibilities of citizenship.

What do they look like?

All classes are currently online and available in two methods:

    1. Live (synchronous) – where students and the teacher all join a virtual classroom at the same time,
      OR
    2. Not-live (asynchronous) classes – where you schedule appointments to work with the teacher or visit their office hours.

Las clases son virtuales usando Blackboard Collaborate.

We will offer face to face classes starting in August.

Classes are divided into two levels

Beginner to Low-Intermediate:  Students are beginners, but may be able to respond with limited spoken English, can understand some key words, and can recognize some common written words.

High-Intermediate to Advanced: Students currently are already able to understand learned phrases and short new sentences, can read text on familiar subjects and write simple paragraphs, as well as follow simple oral and written instructions.
