  • 1. ABOUT Community ESL
    Spring Institute
  • 2. CESL Program Overview
    • We are primarily funded by Federal AEFLA/EL Civics grants
    • 3. We have 19 classes in 9 schools and libraries in the Denver Metro Area
    • 4. We enroll 600-800 students per year
    • 5. We employ 3 full time and 2 part time administrators as well as 17 part-time teachers
    • 6. Our class sizes are a maximum of 25, with an average of 15 students attending each class
    • 7. Our classes meet twice a week for 2½ hours each time
    • 8. Morning or evening classes are available
  • Our Students
    Last year our program served adults from 85 countries
    In the Fall 2010 semester alone we enrolled 546 students
    In addition to wanting to get or improve jobs , pursue further education, or get more engaged in schools as parents:
    31% of students want to improve their computer skills
    21% of students want to pursue their citizenship
    11% of students want to purchase a home
    9% of students want to obtain their driver’s license
  • 9. Technology
    Technology is increasingly recognized as a key skill
    Employers want IT-literate people
    Students generally do not have computers at home, and rely on using technology in the school or library, but access is limited
    We support technology use in our classes through a student wiki
    Improved program technology would help students achieve their goals: improving IT skills by using the wiki; helping them apply online for jobs; check their children’s progress in schools
