Thursday, March 4, 2021
GNTC’s Cedartown Adult Learning Center is offering free English as a Second Language (ESL) classes at 262 North Park Boulevard in Cedartown
Located off North Park Boulevard in Cedartown stands Georgia Northwestern Technical College’s new Cedartown Adult Learning Center, which will begin offering free English as a Second Language (ESL) classes on Monday.
The renovated facility includes classrooms, a computer lab, a conference room, offices and bonus spaces that GNTC’s Office of Adult Education can utilize. According to Anne Clay, GNTC’s Adult Education lead teacher and site manager, the site is currently offering ESL classes and enrollment is open.
“This is such a beautiful building,” Ms.
Clay said. “Several students have already registered to start classes on Monday.”
Students interested in the free classes can contact GNTC’s Cedartown Adult Learning Center at 770-684-7521 to set up an assessment. Ms. Clay said student assessments cover their English skills in four areas, reading, writing, listening and speaking. After the assessment, the center develops a learning plan for the students based on national ESL standards. Classes will take place in the evenings based on student availability.
Angela Freeman will lead the classes and says she is eager to meet her students. Ms. Freeman is a retired teacher and joined GNTC two years ago to teach Adult Education classes.
“I love teaching and to be honest I missed it,” Ms. Freeman said. “I wanted to continue teaching after retirement and it is such a rewarding experience.”
Enrollment will stay open after classes begin on Monday and students can be phased in once they are enrolled. GNTC’s Adult Education also offers ESL courses on the Floyd County Campus, Gordon County Campus and Whitfield Murray Campus. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
