Adult ESL

Important Information For Fall Classes:

ESL Classes and COVID-19

You probably have a lot of questions about class this fall. Our area is in stage 4 of the Michigan Safe Start Plan. We plan to have combined classes. This means that one day of class will be in the classroom in a small group. The other day of class you will be online. Another way of saying that it is 3 hours will be in class and 3 hours will be online.

Classrooms will be installed so that desks are 6 feet away. Everyone will be required to wear face masks. Temperatures will be checked at the door. Start times will be staggered; for example, Level 1 will start at 9:00 am, Level 2 will start at 9:15 am, etc. Laptops and books will be assigned to one student.
If Michigan returns to Stage 3, classes will be online only. Once Michigan progresses to Stage 6, classes will likely return to most in person.

To Register for our Fall classes go to:   

Novi ESL Registration at Eventbrite

Upcoming registrations will be in the final weeks of August. We're determining the exact date based on restrictions from Michigan's Government.

Students who are interested in our class must sign-up at Eventbrite to attend one of our registration sessions. If you do not have an Eventbrite ticket, we cannot allow you to register! Space is limited so we must ask you to sign-up in advance. 
 

These sessions are about two hours long. Please bring one form of photo ID (a passport or drivers license is fine). You will receive information about the class and take two tests. The tests are used to place students into seats in our classes. There is no fee for the registration section. 

We will email everyone who came to registration. We admit as many students as we are able to, using a lottery system to determine who will get seats if we are over capacity.

We will provide more scheduling information as we get closer to the beginning of term.

Program Information

As part of our commitment to fulfill the learning goals of our community, we are proud to offer Adult ESL classes. Offered weekly during the school year, we offer four levels of second language instruction in an immersive environment. 
 
Our first three levels are focused on grammar, writing and speaking exercises to assist students in reaching their English language goals.
Our fourth level is largely conversation focused, helping students continue to improve as they use their language skills.
 
We are additionally proud to offer several supplementary courses including an Evening class two days a week, a once-a-week supplemental conversation class and a unique community focused field trip class. 
 
All classes run September through May.
Levels one, two and three run in two sections, either Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday.
Level four is offered three days a week. These classes, as well as our evening class, are offered based on a placement test given twice a year, in September and January. 
 
No placement test is required for our Field Trip or Conversation options and these classes are open to new students during the year.
