The Evergreen Valley College Language Arts Division offers classes that will build a solid foundation for your success. Programs in English, English as a Second Language (ESL), Languages and Reading help you build language skills and enable you to achieve your academic goals. Our English program offers courses in analytical reading, writing, and research, as well as courses that focus on different kinds of literature. Our ESL program offers six levels of reading, writing, speaking and listening courses for students to improve their English.
The Language Arts Center provides support with supplemental labs for ESL, Reading and Writing courses, where faculty are ready to provide small group and one-on-one help in all language areas. The division offers a variety of online courses in addition to traditional classroom instruction.
We are pleased to offer classes in Spanish, including Spanish as a Heritage Language, and Translation and Interpretation, Vietnamese and Sign Language.
Enlace is a program that helps Chicano/Latino students successfully complete the academic core (English, Math, and Science) and guides them effectively through transfer and occupational courses. It is an important component of the Language Arts Division.
