English as a Second Language: Current Events

English for Speakers of Other Languages: Current Events - Continuing Education at Seattle Central College

Class Overview

Learning English? Improve your English language skills using today’s news as your textbook! 

Intermediate-level English students, this class is for you. Work on building vocabulary, understanding, and comprehension of English, in a practical and fascinating way. Practice speaking, reading, and listening during discussions with other language learners. 

In this class, you can learn grammar naturally by exploring topics in the news each week, chosen by students. You can take this class more than once -- since the news is always changing, you can continue to learn English, along with US culture and news, in this format. Materials for this class will be provided. 

If the class is interested, we can take field trips to local destinations to enhance learning and fun.
