Advanced Level Classes
Conversation and Grammar class uses a variety of methods to build a strong foundation in the English language. Listening exercises, grammar review, writing, pronunciation and vocabulary building are all covered in this dynamic class. Authentic texts are used (ie: newspaper, menu items, medicine labels, and maps) in addition to educational materials from the CLC library.
English Writing class builds on vocabulary words and phrases to learn proper word structure and grammar. In this class, you will learn to master the English language. While the focus is on the written form, this normally brings about an improvement at the speaking level. By playing with idioms and problematic words, writing dictations and reading aloud, we improve your comprehension at the same time as your spelling, and expand your vocabulary. We use tailored exercises to help you understand the correct usage of prepositions, articles, pronouns, punctuation, modifiers and verbs. As the end goal is for you to be able to write on your own, the homework is often writing short texts of a practical nature. Sometimes we also write about less serious things, so you can learn to better express yourself. Although a certain aptitude is required, this class adapts to the capabilities of the students in order to resolve most problems as they appear.
Citizenship Prep Class
Citizenship Prep is a small group setting that is geared towards adults who have met the pre-requirements to become a United States citizen. A tutor helps students understand the N-400 application for Naturalization, explain and study questions for the citizenship test and practice reading and writing simple English sentences for the test.
