Credit English Language Learners

​We offer Reading/Communication and Grammar/Writing classes to assist students whose first language is not English to succeed in academic coursework while at DMACC.

Why should I take credit ELL classes?

By taking credit ELL classes, you can:

  • Build academic language and study skills
  • Ease into college-level academic rigor, expectation, and culture
  • Be prepared for mandatory Composition classes
  • Earn credits toward Elective Course Requirements through advanced-level classes (ELL 108 & ELL 109)
  • Connect with students from various countries
