Information sessions for ESL online to be held

Students around the Valley can learn English and earn college credit in online and in-person courses through Rio Salado College.

The online English as a Second Language (ESL) classes begin every week and in-person classes start Jan. 12. Residents and non-residents may enroll in the courses, which cost $71 to $96 per credit hour.

The classes use innovative voice-recognition software that allows students to hear the words they need to speak and read English. The classes include games and other engaging activities, as well as quizzes and writing assignments to reinforce their learning.

Interested students can learn more about Rio Salado’s ESL online courses at “One-Stop-Shop” information sessions at Rio Salado campuses in the East and West Valley in November.
