ESL Curriculum

Find Lessons

Our latest addition to the Language through Art: An ESL Enrichment Curriculum uses art objects as catalysts to enhance language skills, develop new vocabulary, and expose diverse visitors to a variety of world cultures and experiences. ESL students at the beginning level build language skills by looking at and describing paintings, decorative arts, and photographs focused on people, things, and places.
