WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- Mercer County Community College (MCCC) invites speakers
of Spanish to take credit and noncredit classes in English as a Second
Language (ESL) at its two campuses. MCCC offers a variety of programs
and courses, for the beginner to more advanced learners of English.
At the college's James Kerney Campus in downtown Trenton, the English
Language Institute (ELI) provides English instruction combined with computer-assisted
learning. Instruction is available mornings, afternoons and evenings.
Hybrid or blended classes that combine classroom time with distance learning
are also under development. ELI students may continue their studies in
credit programs at MCCC and then transfer to four-year colleges. To learn
more, call the English Language Institute at 609-570-3185, e-mail email@example.com,
or visit room KC118 on the James Kerney Campus.
As needs are identified, some credit course sections at the James Kerney
Campus are offered in a bilingual mode for students whose native language
is Spanish. With English as the primary language, instructors use Spanish
as needed to help students master course objectives.
the college's suburban West Windsor Campus, the English as a Second Language
(ESL) program offers non-native speakers an opportunity to develop their
English skills as part of their college program. ESL classes are available
to full- or part-time for students to prepare them for entering a degree
program, and for those who wish to improve their skills for personal or
employment reasons. Students who wish to enroll in the program need to
complete an ESL placement test at the International Student Services office.
International students who wish to enter a program of study must complete
