Spring 2013 - Schedule for Specialty ESL Classes


Specialty ESL Program

These courses allow students to use their developing English language skills in real world situations while focusing on academic readiness, business, or American cultural studies. Books are required for most classes and can be purchased from the Loudoun Campus bookstore (LR135).

Some Specialty ESL courses are available to F-1 visa students. F-1 visa students need to speak with the ESL Coordinator for course selection before registering.

All new students must take the ESL placement test before registering. Students will be placed in the appropriate levels of these classes based on the results of the test (an oral interview and a writing sample).

Class locations are subject to change. The college does not provide transportation to or between class locations. For maps and directions see Student Information.

Non-Instructional Days: There will be no classes February 18, and March 11-17, 2013. Courses scheduled at Potomac Falls High School will not meet on March 27 and 28.
