English as a Second Language

English Program in Los Angeles

English Program in Los Angeles

​The Intensive English program at Los Angeles ORT College provides students with the language skills necessary to communicate in everyday conversation in a nurturing learning environment and though the best instruction possible. In the Intensive English program students learn and practice functional English rooted in basic grammar, commonly used vocabulary, functional expressions and phrasal verbs and idioms they are likely to encounter outside of the classroom. At each level, new language skills are learned and reinforced together with skills learned in prior levels that allow for increasingly sophisticated applications of interpersonal communication. Students also have the opportunity of learning English through computers and technology. 

LA ORT uses software such as RosettaStone and CD’s that accompany textbooks to assist in developing greater English language abilities in speaking, writing, listening, and reading. Students also practice grammar, reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in the computer lab where the instructor guides them through an activity that teaches students how to feel more comfortable interacting with the English language in a less formal structure than a textbook.
