What is VESL Lab? VESL Lab is a computer lab designed to practice ESL lessons and computer skills. This is not a Microsoft Office class. But we do mini weekly projects on MS Word to help you become more comfortable with the application.
Student Expectations Bring a folder to class. You will keep all of your assignments in a folder in class. Every week you will be expected to complete ESL lessons and the mini lesson. Every Thursday you will complete an online survey. Everyone is expected to cooperate and help each other. We want to make this a fun lab! You can learn a lot helping another classmate!
What kind of ESL Lessons will we learn? You can always use the ESL software that is on the computer. There will be weekly ESL lessons that you can do to improve your English: writing, listening, pronunciation, spelling, reading, grammar and more! Intermediate/Advanced Students will be expected to complete a summary on www.newsforyouonline.comwww.newsforyouonline.com All students can read and listen to stories on Marshall Adult Education And much more!
Can I improve my keyboarding skills? Yes. We have a software called ULTRA KEY. You should practice a little typing each day. The more familiar you are with the keyboard, the easier it is to use the computer and complete assignments.
Do I have to finish all of the assignments? If you want a certificate at the end of the session, you will need to present the teacher with your organized folder with your assignments. If you miss 2 or 3 assignments, that’s ok. Don’t worry about it. But you will need to have an organized folder.

Do I need to come to class everyday? It is a good idea to come everyday if you can. Every Monday I will teach a new mini lesson. You will have the week to finish it. If you are absent, you will need to sit next to someone in the class and ask them to help you. The more time you spend on the computer, the faster you will learn.
