English Language Learning

An English Language Learning instructor assists students in a computer lab on campus.English Language Learning (ELL) classes at Kellogg Community College offer an opportunity for those who speak languages other than English to enhance their English language skills. ELL students will build a strong foundation in the English language that will prepare them not only for future coursework at KCC, but for university curriculum.

English Language Learning Classes

Beginning with the Fall 2018 semester, KCC will offer intermediate and advanced ELL classes in reading/writing, listening/speaking and grammar/communication. Introductory levels in the same areas will be available beginning January 2019.

Fall 2018 ELL classes include:

  • ELL 83 Intermediate Reading and Writing
  • ELL 84 Intermediate Grammar and Communication
  • ELL 85 Intermediate Speaking and Listening
  • ELL 93 Advanced Reading and Writing
  • ELL 94 Advanced Grammar and Communication
  • ELL 95 Advanced Speaking and Listening

Each class is worth four credit hours and will meet four days each week for one hour during the fall semester.

Signing Up for ELL Classes

Students interested in signing up for ELL classes should complete the following steps:

  1. Apply for admission to KCC. This can be done online at www.kellogg.edu/step1. If you need assistance, contact KCC’s Admissions office at 269-965-4153 or adm@kellogg.edu or visit us in the Hub on campus at 450 North Ave. in Battle Creek.
  2. Take the Accuplacer ESL exam. The results of the Accuplacer ESL exam will determine the level of coursework the individual student should enroll in. It is common for students to test at different levels depending on the subject. For example, a student might test into speaking/listening at an advanced level, yet they may test into reading/writing and grammar/communication at an intermediate level.
