ESL – English as a Second Language

Learn to speak, read and write English

Beginner, intermediate and advanced English courses are available. A test given the first day of class will determine the right level for each student. Skills covered include reading, writing, speaking and listening. The advanced course is recommended for students who are planning to attend college. All students must purchase a textbook. There are three ways to register for an English course: call (845) 431-8910 and ask for Kimberly or Margie; visit the Community Services office at DCC’s Poughkeepsie or Wappingers Falls campus or simply come to class. Registration closes September 26. There will be no class November 24.
