ESLStudents coming to us from abroad may have adequate spoken English while not having acquired the skills in reading and writing to adequately address the challenges of ANC’s academic program or college course requirements in the future. Our goal in ESL is to provide a language program that focuses on reading and writing skills to expand the student’s capabilities in these areas, looking toward a successful transition into an American University or College.
