Program: English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

Program Snapshot: ESOL classes help students learn English and open doors to school and work. We have classes for students who know little or no English and for students who know some English but need more practice. All classes apply English learning to real-world situations that help build practical skills.


  • A full range of ESOL classes for students with different abilities.
  • Classes are available to meet student’ scheduling needs. We have four class cycles each year (summer, fall, winter, and spring) and have two schedules (morning from 9am to 12pm and evening from 6pm to 9pm).
  • Access to NMIC’s English conversation classes, ABE/HSE classes, and career services.
