ESOL Information

 

 

 

This program serves a wide range of non-English speakers.  Kettering Aspire serves students who have limited to no English skills all the way up to advanced English speakers.  These free ESOL classes are divided based on skill-level to best address the needs of each learner.  Classes are designed to help the students improve their skills in speaking, listening, reading, writing, and knowledge of the American culture.  We also utilize the computer lab to provide hands-on experience for students by using Rosetta Stone software, Burlington English, and other websites.  The ESOL program has been highly effective in helping students reach their goals of learning English, integrating into American society, gaining and maintaining employment, and continuing on to college.
 
Classes are free.  All books and materials are provided.  Tutors are available to work with students on a one-to-one basis as long as students are attending class regularly.  Please call our office to register for the new student orientation.  We have classes in the Kettering Area at  D.L. Barnes (Board of Education) building.
