We offer courses for English Language Learners (ELL), which is a diverse group of individuals from around the world who are beginning to learn English. Some ELL students may have parents who have lived outside of the US, and therefore a language proficiency test will be conducted. English is taught in schools according to regimented programs and because of this ELL students face a great deal of pressure since they have to cope with keeping up with the standards of a language that they have not yet mastered.

Here at DLC we are very supportive of and understand this pressure that ELL students may face. Our ELL courses are very effective in improving the competency coupled with school learning. The flexibility in our ELL after school program allows students to be able to learn in an environment that focuses on their individual learning styles and enables them to learn at their own pace. We align our curriculum to match the curricular goals of the school.
