English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

KANSEL provides morning and evening English classes for adults 16 and older who come to Wichita, Kansas from all over the world, speaking dozens of languages and dialects.

This program builds from the basics, with a focus on foundational speaking, reading, and writing. This base learning initially provides students survival and conversational English, and as they advance, they will begin to master their newly acquired language. Results including safer communities, better employment, and increased educational opportunities.
