ESOL Level 3 is an intensive, advanced-level combined-skills course for non-native speakers of English in both Junior High and High School. It is designed to guide students in the development of grammar, reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills as applied to academic English. Students will be given a Milestones diagnostic test on the first day of class to ensure proper level placement. Upon course completion, each student will be given an individualized skills assessment report. In addition, those students who will be continuing their studies at American Heritage School in the Fall Semester will receive a recommendation for ESOL placement for the upcoming academic school year.
This 6- week course is offered for first time credit, for credit grade replacement, or for non-credit enrichment in preparation for taking the course in the future. Please check with your school regarding credit from outside institutions.
