ESL is excited to offer a new class for English Language Learners interested in careers in the Health Professions starting spring term 2020!

The ESL Medical English class focuses on learning Medical English in order to prepare non-native speakers of English to enter training or careers in the Healthcare Industry. The focus is on careers that require less than 2 years of training with a special focus on exploring opportunities to study at LCC. The class will help students improve language skills in the context of healthcare. Students will also learn study skills, digital literacy skills, and communication skills that lead to career and academic success.
