English Language Learners

Anoka Technical College seeks to engage English Language Learners (ELL) in their academic learning and English language development. We are committed to providing a positive and supportive environment that allows students to demonstrate growing proficiency in the English language.

Services to assist students whose first language is not English include free English Language Learner classes, career counseling, advising, tutoring services and much more.

Free ELL Classes

Adult Basic Education (ABE)

Free English Language Learner (ELL) classes: Prepare for college by attending free English Language Learner (ELL) classes on the Anoka Technical College campus. Classes are taught by ABE teachers and are designed to help students develop occupational and English communication skills to promote success in employment, occupational training, or college. Classes focus on reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.

Are you interested in participating in Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes to enhance your foundational skills? To enroll in ABE programs, students must first attend an ABE class enrollment session. Information regarding ABE enrollment sessions can be found here.
