Tailored specifically for mothers participating in the family literacy program, our in-person ESL classes prioritize the preservation of students’ native languages while fostering the development of English skills as a second language. Aligned with the approved course outlines from the California Department of Education’s Division of Adult and Career Education, our courses empower mothers with the language proficiency necessary for personal, vocational, academic, and citizenship goals, enabling them to actively engage in society and effectively support and advocate for their children. These competency-based courses are strategically designed to enhance language proficiency through integrated instructional activities covering the four essential language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Join us in these purposeful classes as we guide mothers through the journey of enhancing their language abilities, empowering them to play active roles in their families and communities.
Our community-accessible online ESL classes consist of 8 to 10 sessions, each running for approximately one to one and a half hours. Structured thematically, these sessions are designed to be inclusive, catering to students with diverse proficiency levels rather than segregating them by skill.
