Classroom teachers are the vital part of local adult education programs successes through student classroom instruction.

English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), empowers non-English speaking individuals to become knowledgeable in English in order to become self-sufficient, with the English skills necessary for current and future employment and for personal success in daily life.

We assist non-English speaking adults to become literate in English and obtain the knowledge and skills necessary for a successful life in Utah.

English Language and Civics Education (EL/Civics), includes not only ESOL skills but also introduces individuals to a civics education necessary for them to be an educated citizen of the United States and Utah. Civics education is not a citizenship class designed to help individuals pass the citizenship test, but an education in the civic responsibilities of citizens of the United States.
