English Language Program

What is the ELP Program?

English Language Program is a course of study designed to help adults of other languages improve their English speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. Three (3) ELP levels are available: Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced. Adults 18 and over may enroll. Sixteen and seventeen year olds who have never attended or completed high school nor attended elementary school in North Carolina may also enroll.

In my opinion, all ELP classes are very important. I had the opportunity to attend two ELP classes in the 2009 fall semester. One class was in the evening on-campus, and it helped me significantly improve my listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills. The other ELP class was at the Wilson Public Library. This course helped me learn about the U.S. history and government as well as the importance of the upcoming 2010 Census.

I hope that Hispanic students make the difference in the future. It is hard, but we can do it. Thanks so much to all my teachers.
