In the Reading & ESL Center, you can fulfill the hour-by-arrangement requirement of your reading or ESL class or enroll in an independent, lab-only course to improve any aspect of your reading, vocabulary, or conversation.

You can:
  • Develop your vocabulary
  • Learn and apply spelling rules
  • Improve your reading rate
  • Deepen your comprehension of textbook material
  • Practice pronunciation
  • Practice conversation with ESL teachers and non-native speakers
  • Improve note-taking and listening skills
The Reading & ESL Center is staffed by instructors and instructional aides, so you can get personalized attention.  Books and other print materials, videos, DVDs, and computer programs will also assist your instruction.
