Hello future COA ESOL students! My name is Brian Ng and I have been teaching at College of Alameda since Fall 2007. In the COA ESOL department, we have an established educational culture that emphasizes a student’s first approach that requires listening and dialog to ensure that the curriculum matches the needs of the students. I have taught reading and writing, grammar, listening and speaking, pronunciation, conversation, and vocabulary and idioms at multiple levels. Learning a language as an adult is a lifelong journey and I hope that I can be a small part of your educational journey.
