two people talking with signs


We, at Mentora College, are proud to offer our general English curriculum (A1-C1) for deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) students as well. We adapt our core curriculum for these classes and keep the focus on reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary skills. We supplement this with ASL material, such as the Signing Naturally Series by Smith, Lentz, and Mikos as well as Learning American Sign Language by Humphries and Padden.
Students who enroll in these classes should be able to communicate using ASL.

Students who would like to enroll in the IEP DHH classes should first take the Mentora College placement exam. This will assess your writing, grammar and vocabulary skills. You will have a one-on-one interview with the DHH teacher to determine your signing level. You will be placed in an appropriate level based on your grade from the placement exam as well as your performance during the interview.


Hi, my name is Emili Gomez from Valencia, Venezuela. Since I started my studies in Mentora my English has improved a lot, as much as writing, speaking, and listening. I think this is the meaning of success, that you totally improved all your skills. Mentora is so good and everyone who studies here is very lucky to be part of such a good language school. My favorite teacher is Brandon. He is very friendly and understanding.


Hi, My name is Panisara. I am a Thai student who has studied here for almost 2 years. Honestly, I really really love this college. We are such a family, I feel happy every session to join the class. Every teacher makes me feel free to ask and talk, especially enjoy the class even though what we are studying is quite difficult.


My name is Shuudertsetseg, I am from Mongolia. I have studied at Mentora College for over 1 year. My College is about a structured and efficient curriculum that helps me apply everything that I study in real life. Having a set of brilliant professors who are willing to go to great lengths for students, only adds to its perks.
