Student Diversity

Students from around the world come to Colorado to learn English

Students come to the Language Learning Center for many reasons.  New immigrants come to improve their English skills.  Refugees and asylees come to learn English and get job-training skills.  Others come to improve their English to get better jobs.  Still others come to improve their English so that they can enroll in GED classes or certificate programs at the technical college.  With over 2,500 students coming to our classes each year, we truly represent the world.

From our students...

 I saw the lower tuition, the small class sizes and the hands on training.  It keeps my interest and working as a team helps my communication skills too.
