Canal Alliance offers English as a Second Language (ESL) classes to help adults gain the language skills they need to work toward their educational and career goals, succeed on the job, and participate as active members of their community.

Classes are offered at multiple levels to meet the needs of students with various language skills. Students are placed in classes based on their individual language skill level. To accommodate work and family schedules, classes are offered throughout the year and at various times during the week.

Regular classes meet 2 times per week for 2 hours; Intensive classes meet 4 days per week and give students the opportunity to acquire English at an accelerated rate.

You can contact the following staff members for more information about our ESL program:

Due to the pandemic, all classes are now offered online. Fall 2020 semester: August 24, 2020 – December 3, 2020
