English Language Learning (ELL)

Do you need to improve your English skills?​

Our English Language Learning (ELL) classes teach adults whose native language is not English how to read, write and communicate in English. Instruction includes an array of curriculum utilizing audio, computer, workbook and conversational materials, and some off-campus field trips.

All ELL classes are non-credit and offered tuition free. Materials are available for use in class and several of our textbooks are available for purchase in CVTC’s bookstore.
