Kirkwood’s English Language Acquisition (ELA) course of study offers many opportunities for you to practice your English speaking and writing skills. A Kirkwood education can help prepare you for a better career, or to transfer to a four year institution.
Before you begin taking ELA coursework, you will consult with the ELA coordinator, Sharon Falduto in Cedar Rapids or in Iowa City, or Department Assistant Mohamed Joreya in Iowa City Room 101, to learn more about Kirkwood and what to expect from the ELA course of study.
All courses are taught in English, which helps prepare you for further study at Kirkwood or other colleges and universities. Additionally, studying English helps non-native speakers improve their employment and promotion opportunities.
