We offer a great range of classes, from English as a Second Language and Basic Spanish Literacy to Computer Classes and High School Equivalencies.
English as a Second Language Classes (ESL)
We offer three levels of English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, all with a civics focus. Classes are based on the Brazilian educator Paulo Freire’s participatory approach to education, which means that students’ voices and life experiences greatly inform the curriculum. Learning is student-centered and hands-on. Students have an active role in class content and program evaluation. They learn speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
Pre-ESL (English as a Second Language) Classe
With the technology sector growing larger every day and the need for computer skills in almost every job, MUA is proud to offer three levels of computer classes for our students.
High School Equivalency Testing (Hi-SET) in Spanish (previously GED)
At MUA, students receive the necessary preparation in the five subject areas- reading, writing, science, social studies, and mathematics- to take the Hi-SET (previously called the GED) in Spanish. Having a high school diploma opens up many possibilities for employment, higher education, and personal fulfillment.
