Welcome to the ESL Department @ GWC

What classes do we offer?

We offer seven levels of classes both morning and evening. You can take a Core class (grammar and writing skills), a Reading class, or a Listening/Speaking class according to your needs and your schedule.  You can take 3 classes, or 2 classes or 1 class. Remember, the more you practice, the faster you will learn. Also, take a look at the helpful resources listed at the bottom of the ESL Questions and Help page.
