Instituto's adult English courses help students build the foundation to further their education. Adult classes are offered on a variety of schedules to accommodate students' needs and provide on-site child care while parents are in class. Students are placed in ESL courses specific to their skill level to prepare them to move on to contextualized career courses.
In addition to our traditional ESL classes, Instituto is currently piloting and evaluating a new model for teaching English as a Second Language. The CYBER-ESL program combines in-person and on-line instruction with self-directed coursework at times and locations convenient for the student. With an increased retention rate and significant education gains, our pilot cohorts are demonstrating just how promising this approach is with our adult learners.
