- English As A Second Language (“ESL”) Programs
- On Campus ESL Program
- On-Site Customized ESL
The Hispanic Institute makes it easy for an employer to arrange for its workers to receive quality instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL). A company can choose to send employees to our regular on-campus program or have the Institute develop a custom program, tailored to the employer’s particular industry, with instruction delivered at the company’s site.
The Institute operates an extensive adult education program that offers ten (10) levels of English as a Second Language (ESL), as well as Courses in keyboarding, word processing, and other basic business/office skills. This program serves more than 2,000 students a year at its instructional site located in Hackensack.
The Courses cover elementary, intermediate and advanced ESL, focusing on grammar and vocabulary as well as on reading and writing skills. English is taught in a variety of practical contexts. (e.g. employment, housing, shopping, banking, etc.)
Courses are offered year-round, on Saturdays, with both morning and afternoon sessions available. Call our office to obtain a detailed schedule.
The Registration fee is $200.00 per person for a 40-hour (ten-week) course. Discounted rates are available for employers enrolling groups of 15 or more students at one time.
At the end of each course, the Institute will provide the employer with a report detailing the attendance record and final grade of each employee enrolled in the program.
One of the Institute’s experienced ESL professionals will meet with the employer’s management to analyze the needs of the company, design an appropriate and relevant course of study, and arrange a convenient class schedule.
The Institute also provides instruction to managers and executives who are non-native speakers of English that need to familiarize themselves with business expressions and idioms commonly used in the U.S.
Fees are based on the number of participants, as well as the number of instructional hours desired. Most Courses are conducted in 20 or 40 hour modules conducted over 10-week or 5-week cycles.
At the end of each course, the Institute will provide the employer with a detailed progress report on each student.
Since all Courses are customized to your needs, call us to discuss your particular requirements.
Regardless of whether you choose the on-campus or the on site custom program, all students are administered an English proficiency test prior to beginning their studies so that can be placed in the appropriate level of instruction.
The Hispanic Institute’s ESL Courses are taught by a pool of seasoned professional instructors experienced in teaching adult learners. Their experience includes teaching in industry, in colleges and universities, and in various other settings, both in the U.S. and abroad.
