Night classes address growing language needs
In response to the growing diversity of Northwest Iowas population, Dordt College is
offering two night classes second semester intended to help both community people and
Dordt College students bridge the communication gap between English-speaking residents and those with
little or no English-speaking skills.
Foundations of ESL/EFL Teaching is a once-a-week evening class to assist classroom teachers or other individuals working with non-native English-speaking persons. Course participants will benefit by learning the skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing. The course also addresses current methods and techniques for teaching English as a Second Language and explores the roles of mainstream teachers, ESL teachers, and administrators.
Spanish in the Workplace will help students develop the Spanish language skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking for the workplace or in businesses that involve Spanish-speaking people.
