What are English Language/ESL Classes?
Learning English is the first step to continuing on to college. Rio Salado College will help you get there. Rio Salado College offers a dynamic learning environment for you to increase your English language skills. Classes are available to students age 16 and older in a supportive environment designed for adults.
English language classes focus on:
- Digital Literacy
Modes of Instruction
Rio Salado offers in-person and virtual, live-online GED® preparation classes, with morning and evening options available. In-person classes are offered at (multiple) community-based locations across Maricopa County. Virtual classes are taught live-online, through our Virtual Learning Academy (VLA), where you can log in at a designated time and learn from a live teacher with other students at the same time. Additional online study tools are available for both in-person and virtual, live-online students. However you attend class, you will be learning from passionate, dedicated teachers who are eager to help you prepare to pass the GED® test.
In-Person / Face-to-Face
This is the traditional classroom format, where classes meet on campus in a face-to-face environment.
Virtual Learning Academy (VLA)
VLA is comprised of instructor-led, live-online classes. You'll have the chance to interact with your instructor and classmates in a virtual environment. Your sessions meet online on specific days and times every week, just like an in-person class.
