General ELL class
Our ELL classes help students improve in the following areas of language: reading, writing, speaking, pronunciation, and listening. The class utilizes the textbook series, “Stand Out,” which provides many opportunities for independent practice and working in small groups. The themes discussed in the course will assist students in communicating within their community, becoming familiar with community resources, and preparing for advancement in their education and/or career. Students are also introduced to our free computer software, Burlington English, during ELL class time.
On our Fond du Lac campus, we have two book clubs that meet twice a month (Thursday evenings and Friday mornings). The book clubs are designed for intermediate and advanced level students. High interest books are chosen; typically biographies or novels that are written for adults and young adults. Skills practiced are reading, vocabulary building, pronunciation and speaking. While improving English is the primary focus, lasting friendships are formed with students from all over the world. For more information, contact Kristen Nicole Munoz, the ELL Program Specialist in Fond du Lac at 920-924-6339.
Burlington English is a supplemental interactive online language learning program that is provided free of charge for all ELL students attending classes at Moraine Park. The program is for all proficiency levels with courses designed to provide situational practice and vocabulary development that prepares students for everyday activities in the U.S. as well as career readiness and career pathways instruction. Career courses are offered to help students become proficient in specific career-related vocabulary to help them be successful at work or prepare for a new job.
On our West Bend campus, we offer a bilingual GED course for students who are looking to earn their high school credential. Earning a high school credential (GED) can help students advance in their careers or prepare them for college. Students meet Tuesday and Thursday evenings and study for the reading, math, science, social studies, and civics exams in English or Spanish. Instruction and materials are available in both languages. For more information, contact Tony Rodriguez, the ELL Program Specialist in West Bend, at 262-306-5302.
