The ESL Program
Sinclair’s ESL program is intended to help prepare students for degree and certificate-level classes, but ESL classes do not count towards obtaining a degree or a certificate. There are three core class levels: ESL 050 (high-beginner level), ESL 070 (low-intermediate level) and ESL 090 (high- intermediate level). Additionally, there are two levels of reading and writing (ESL 030 and ESL 035) and two levels of speaking and listening (ESL 040 and ESL 045). After a student passes ESL 090, the student can take a reading and writing test to determine which future classes they should take.
Paul Carbonaro is the coordinator of the ESL program. You can contact him by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (937) 512-3099. His office is in room 10231. This office also serves as a meeting space for ESL students. The space has computers and headphones available for use by ESL students.
