We can help you learn to speak English! Classes are offered at the beginning and intermediate levels both day and night on the Coos Bay campus. Students will receive instruction in speaking, reading, writing, and listening to English in a fun, safe classroom atmosphere and through experiential field trips. Classes are open to refugees, immigrants, permanent citizens, and US residents who wish to work toward personal or academic goals. Many of our students move on to completing their GED, entering a certificate or degree program at Southwestern, becoming more involved in their communities, and most importantly—meeting daily communication needs!
We do also offer assistance to pass the US Naturalization (Citizenship) exam. Please check with us each quarter for more information as this is supported by volunteers.
To enroll, new students must attend an Orientation and take a placement exam. Placement exams are used only as a guide to help instructor develop individual programs of study for students. Results are shared with the student so they are aware of areas to focus on. Orientations are held the first day of each academic quarter and classes begin the following day. Registration fees are due at Orientation.
