Hackettstown, N.J., June 28, 2017 – For the Fall 2017 semester, Centenary University will offer adult English as a Second Language (ESL) classes for the community. This service is offered to adults who are not full time matriculated students at the University, as there has been a growing demand for a class like this in the Hackettstown area.
The classes will be held on Thursday nights from 5:30 p.m. through 8:00 p.m. beginning on September 7, 2017 through December 7, 2017. Classes will be taught by Professor Lauren Lesce, M.A., Linguistic Studies at Syracuse University.
“I am very happy to be offering this program to the community for our third year,” says Professor Lesce. “It is gratifying to see our students develop their language skills and make progress towards their professional and personal goals after they complete the course.”
Members of this class are eligible to obtain a library card from Centenary University. Students may use computers, printers, videos, books and magazines at the library to assist them with their English language studies. Also, the library has expanded its selection of bilingual and Spanish books.
The community ESL class first started in September of 2015 at full capacity. In response to continued interest, the University is pleased to be able to expand this program as a way to help community members become more proficient in English and acquire the basic knowledge and skills they need to function effectively as parents, workers, and citizens. Classes are open to persons 18 years or older. The cost for the course is $150.00. For information or to register, contact Professor Lauren Lesce ESL Instructor/Tutor at (908) 852-1400, ext. 2330 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Online registration is available here.
