Plymouth ESOL

The English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program is designed for students interested in learning the English language. Massasoit Community College offers a series of ESOL courses in Plymouth, MA. Our courses are designed for adult students with varying levels of English speaking ability – from those that speak very little English to those that are conversational and want to master the language.

How the Plymouth ESOL program works
Students interested in the Plymouth ESOL program are assessed by Massasoit Community College staff at the Plymouth training site at 71 Obery Street. Based on the assessment results, students are referred to one of six ESOL courses. The six ESOL levels are described below:

Beginner level:
These courses are designed for students with little or no English ability. The courses focus on basic oral communication and an introduction to reading and writing.

Intermediate level:
Intermediate courses are designed for students with fundamental English ability. The courses focus on oral communication, pronunciation, reading and writing. Grammar and vocabulary building are specific areas of focus.

Advanced level:
Advanced course levels are designed for students with strong English ability. These courses focus on conversation practice, pronunciation, reading, and writing. Grammar, vocabulary building, and composition writing are specific areas of focus.

Each course costs $197, plus text book.
