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 got my GED here and then said, ‘wow that was it.’ I wanted to continue to go to school and since I’m paying out of pocket it was the best option.

From our teachers...

There are students at different levels in every class and they can help and work with each other.  I’m here to keep students moving in the right direction.
