    Weather Cancellations:

    When Richland School District One students are delayed or when schools are closed due to weather conditions, English classes will NOT meet.

    The Richland One Adult Education ESL Program is an exciting place to be! Students are learning to listen, speak, read, and write English.

    This is happening because the program:

    • Uses university-trained teachers
    • Gives placement tests to ensure each student is getting the best education
    • Provides students access to quality textbooks, computers, interactive boards, and iPads
    • Teaches American culture through special speakers, field trips, and holiday celebrations
    • Qualifies for the Deferred Action Program
    • Helps English Language Learners achieve their GED goals
    • Prepares students for the U.S. citizenship interview


     Here are some things the students are saying:

    "I like this English class.  I met very good friends and teacher in my class.  We are improving our English.  English was very hard for me but I enjoy studying English now." - A student from Asia.


    "I'm very satisfied with these English classes.  I tried other classes, but they weren't the same.  Here I know I'll learn." -A student from South America.


    "When I first came here, I couldn't understand any English. I started going to English class and it helped me a lot. Now I feel comfortable in America." -A student from South America
