The Language Center offers non-credit courses in English Language Skills, foreign languages, and American Sign Language (ASL) for students who wish to improve their language skills.
Language Center offers the use of our computer lab to all of our students. We have software for many of our English language and foreign language courses. All registered students are welcome to take advantage of this effective educational resource.
Due to the ongoing popularity of the Language Center’s Winter Session, in 2014 our Winterim will begin on January 4. Registration will be open for those courses that are jam-packed every season! This six-week session gives registrants an opportunity to either start something new or maintain their proficiency in between the Fall and Spring. English Language Skills classes meet on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday which allows for regular reinforcement and the subsequent growth of knowledge. Please scan the lists and descriptions below to see what is available.
NCC’s Language Center of Lifelong Learning English Language Skills classes are specifically designed for non-Native English speakers. New English Language students or students who have not attended our English classes for 1 year or more should make an appointment so we can asses your skills and place you into the correct class level. English Language classes are designed to meet different student needs. The core curriculum includes: English Language Skills, levels 1-4. In addition to our core classes, English language students may take elective classes
The Language Center is proud to offer a variety of foreign languages for study as well as American Sign Language. Foreign Language courses are taught to groups at different levels of mastery, guiding students in speaking, reading, writing, and listening to the language as well as in developing a familiarity with important customs, cultures, and traditions of the countries in which the languages are spoken.
