Massasoit Community ESOL Program
Massasoit Community College Free ESOL Program
The Massasoit Community English as a Second Language (ESOL) Program is funded by a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). The program addresses the needs of adult learners from other countries to gain English proficiency from Beginner to Advanced levels. Based on individual student needs, our instructors tailor lessons to maximize opportunities for students to attain their life goals.
Classes are held from September to June at both the Massasoit Community College’s Brockton and Canton Campuses. The 34-week long program offers Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced levels of ESOL. Topics include reading, writing, grammar, American Culture & Civics, numeracy, conversation, pronunciation, and computer labs.
Placements are chosen through a lottery system. Interested students must register to be included in the lottery that is held twice a year: August & December.
All classes and books are offered FREE of charge to students with limited English proficiency. Classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday Evenings from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Classes are offered in a hybrid model on the Canton Campus and in-person on the Brockton campus.
