ESL in the community
Research techs may benefit from Pre-College English classes at Boston Health Care and Research Training Institute
Writing classes include English 090 Writing Skills I and English 095 Writing Skills II
There is a fee associated with these classes and they require placement test to see if the prospective participant is an appropriate fit for the course.
The population for Training Institute programs is typically entry-level employees (ESD, Food Services, AAs from around the hospital, etc.). However, there are also reading/writing for non-native speakers and pre-college writing classes.
