Literacy programs at LASOS are work and life skills based. Students are provided the opportunities to increase their abilities so that they may have the skills needed to obtain better economic stability for their families.
Classes are from September to December and January to June. The LASOS English programs are based on life and work skills.
Beginning Language Skills
This course helps students become somewhat effective in conversation, using basic language, and listening skills. Students with limited exposure to native-spoken English will develop confidence in their listening and speaking skills through extensive practice. Skills will be taught in a relaxed atmosphere that will activate learning.
Intermediate Language Skills
This course helps students become more effective in conversation, using functional language, and improving listening skills. Exercises and drills will target grammar trouble spots in speaking and writing and common pronunciation errors. Students will also learn phrasal verbs and develop more sophisticated vocabulary.
Advanced Language Skills
Students develop and perfect language skills for teamwork, discussions, debates, civic discussions, and other verbal interactions needed to be successful in interviews, leading discussions and giving class presentations. Guided exercises aid students in improving listening and reading skills.
LASOS offers Child Development activities for the children of parents in the ESOL class. The sessions focus on literacy and social skills.
