Curriculum and Instruction

Atlanta Public Schools

District Home



English as a Second Language (ESL) courses with Atlanta Public Schools Adult Education Program, are designed to teach adults of limited English proficiency how to read, write, and speak the English language. 
The courses primarily focus on the fundamental concepts of the English language (i.e. vocabulary, grammar, spelling, verb tense, and basic civics lessons) as well as life skills of American culture.  Students are expected to practice newly acquired English skills at home.
Students receive instruction and practice in the areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking at the beginning, intermediate or advance level.  The level of student instruction is determined by their assessment scores taken during registration.
