ESL – English as a Second Language
English as a Second Language (ESL) is a language program designed for adults, 16 years and older, whose native language is not English. The ESL program helps students improve their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills from literacy to the advanced level. These skills are necessary for success in the workplace, the community, and for future course work. Students improve English skills while also learning about American culture.
Before entry into the program, a student must obtain an English skills assessment for accurate placement. Contact us for further information.
Spoon River College has partnered with Career Link Region 15 and Workforce Innovation Board of Western Illinois Region 14 to improve job readiness skills for those students residing in the Spoon River College District.
The program is designed for 17-24 year old students who are deficient in math and/or reading and meet criteria for enrollment. The program offers incentives for students to bring up their levels while working toward passing the GED®.
Adult Volunteer Literacy Program
The Literacy Program offers services to adults in the College district. With the help of trained volunteers, our programs are centered upon improving the reading, writing, and math level of each individual while understanding their unique needs and goals. We provide volunteer-based, flexible, student centered, confidential, and free adult literacy services.
