The ESL Programme is designed to help foreign learners who are interested in learning English as a second language. Our lecturers are multilingual and trained to help learners develop their speaking, writing, reading, and listening skills as well as their appreciation for culture.
Lecturers will help facilitate the learning of English as a second language by simplifying concepts and language rules. Cultural fieldtrips, guest lectures and language tutorials will be organised. The offerings include:
This programme is offered online via Sir Arthur Lewis Communtiy College's virtual learning platform, and Zoom.
Learners from non-English speaking territories as well as foreign nationals who reside on island.
The Sir Arthur Lewis Community College (SALCC) recognized the first cohort of Cuban medical personnel who successfully completed the first phase of an English as a Second Language (ESL) course. This training was organised as a goodwill initiative for the Medical Brigade.
The ceremony to present certificates of completion was held at the Golden Palm Events Center in Rodney Bay on Saturday, July 4, 2020, at 3 p.m.
The training workshops spanned five weeks, from June 1 to July 2, 2020.
The English as a Second Language programme was designed to help the Cuban doctors and nurses communicate with local medical personnel, patients, and the community at large while they helped St. Lucia fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
We at SALCC expresses profound gratitude to the Cuban Medical team for their selfless work here. Approximately 80 Cubans completed the programme.
Sessions continue in July 2020 with the second cohort of new learners as well as continuing participants.
