Keystone offers ESL and English Language (EL)/Civics (Citizenship) classes morning and evening at sites in Lansdale and Souderton. Students are placed into levels based on English listening and reading assessments. All students must be assessed before placement into class. Components of ESL class are listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, along with civics and workforce preparation lessons.
ESL and EL/Civics classes are provided by grants from the Pennsylvania Department of Education. All classes are offered free of charge. The program runs a full schedule of managed ESL classes in three semesters: fall, winter, and spring. Students attend classes twice a week with 2.5 hours of instruction per class. Students are expected to attend regularly and may be dropped from class for extended absences.
Three ESL and EL/Civics registrations are held each year. Adults interested in attending ESL class should call the office and ask to be placed on the mailing list for the next registration. Students are placed into class at the beginning of each semester: September, January and April.
All ESL/EL Civics registrations are held in Souderton. Adults wishing to attend class in Lansdale must first attend assessment/registration in Souderton. Keystone does not hold registration at our Lansdale sites.
