English as a Second Language (ESL)
Inglés como una idioma segunda

Los estudiantes en la programa de ESL aprenden como leer, escribir y hablar ingles. Hay tres niveles de ESL: Principiante, intermedio y avanzado. Si quiere matricular en nuestra programa, tiene que venire para un examén.

Ofrecemos el examen cada lunes a las 6 :00 de la noche y cada miercoles a las 2 :00 de la tarde.

No tiene que hacer una cita para tomar el examen, pero tiene que llegar en punto por favor. El examen va a durar una hora y media y no puede llevar ninos o amigos al examen.

This course provides instruction in English for individuals who do not speak English as a first language. Learning English is important for self-improvement, better job opportunities, and preparation for citizenship. The program is FREE OF CHARGE and open to individuals age 18 and older.

To enter ESL classes, the first step is a placement test. We offer this test weekly on Mondays at 6:00 pm and Wednesdays at 2:00 pm in the Elsee Building, Room A139 (245 College Road, Smithfield, NC 27577).

You do not need to make an appointment to take the placement test, but please arrive on time as late arrivals will not be allowed to enter testing sessions already in progress. Also, please note that children and guests may not accompany you to the exam.
