Kirkwood’s English Language Acquisition (ELA) course of study offers many opportunities for you to practice your English speaking and writing skills. Before you begin taking ELA coursework, you will consult with the ELA coordinator, Catherine Schaff-Stump, or her staff 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.
