Free ESOL courses offered this summer
Area residents wanting to expand their English skills are encouraged to sign up for the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) course at Owens Community College's Toledo-area Campus. The free course is offered throughout the summer months.
Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the College’s Workforce and Community Services on Tracy Road in Northwood, Ohio.
“Owens Community College is proud to provide Northwest Ohio residents with educational opportunities to develop their English skills,” said Phil Paskvan, Owens part-time Adult Basic Literacy Education (ABLE) instructional coordinator. "The course will enable participants to further their educational and career aspirations, or simply improve their day-to-day conversational skills."
Any person seeking to improve their command of English is welcome to attend an ESOL course. Owens’ classes are comprehensive and will cover listening, speaking, reading and writing. Participants will develop skills and vocabulary in such practical areas as shopping, school, work and social settings. Additionally, there will be opportunities to ask questions about American culture in a friendly and personal adult classroom atmosphere.
Enrollment in the course is free and available to individuals over the age of 18. For more information or to register for the class, call (567) 661-7357 or 1-800-GO-OWENS, Ext. 7357.
