Courses Offered

ESOL stands for English for Speakers of Other Languages. In other schools, it is known as ELL, ESL, or ELD. Programs like these exist to support students who are learning English as a second, third, or fourth language. Best practices in the field of language learning view ESOL through the lens of asset-based partnership between learners of diverse backgrounds and proficiency levels.

More Information

ESOL programs were first created in the 1970s. Hispanic and Asian Americans, especially those learning English, were not fully included in schools. Many times, they received lessons they couldn’t understand or lessons that were less important for their future. Civil Rights protests, like the East L.A. Walkouts in 1968, forced schools to change. Today, students who are learning English as a second, third, or fourth language have new rights. York Tech’s ESOL Program works hard to fulfill and protect those rights.
