Academic Excellence – ESL at Laney College

31 March 2016

Peralta_News_Temp

Laney College’s ESL Department (English as a Second Language) and The Lake Merritt – Independent Senior Living community have teamed up in an incredibly successful partnership.

Every Friday, the Laney College ESL class practices conversational English with residents of The Lake Merritt – Independent Senior Living. This program is a hit with both students from Laney’s ESL class and the residents of The Lake Merritt.

It’s a winning situation for all. Practice makes perfect and that is exactly what the ESL students get to do with residents of The Lake Merritt. Numerous studies have shown that loneliness can lead to problems in mental, physical and emotional health with aging adults. The benefits of feeling helpful and needed often makes a huge difference in anyone’s life, no matter their age and through this one-of-a-kind program, both parties benefit in the most awesome way!

The Peralta Colleges Add 200 New Classes For Spring Semester – Students Urged to Enroll Now!

10 January 2013

To meet increased demand, the Peralta Colleges–Berkeley City College, College of Alameda and Laney and Merritt Colleges in Oakland–have added 200 new classes for the spring 2013 semester.

The courses are filling up quickly, and students need to enroll now to ensure they get the classes they need. Classes start January 22, 2013.

The added classes include English, Math, Biology, Business, Biotechnology, Multimedia Arts, Music, Art, Social Science, Ethnic Studies, Political Science, ESL, Environmental, Dance and other areas of study.

After years of state-imposed budget cuts that resulted in fewer classes, the passage of Proposition 30 in November made it possible for the Peralta Colleges to add additional classes for the spring semester. This will enable the colleges to accommodate 700 more full-time students.

To enroll in the classes, students should check the Peralta Community College District online class schedule at www.peralta.edu, and sign up for classes as quickly as possible.
