Program Information

Learning English will help students attain employment or pursue degree and certificate programs that use English as the language of instruction.

 

The ESL program is divided into 5 levels. Students should see a counselor to select additional courses in other areas for which their language skills will be acceptable.

 

  • Level 1- Beginning College ESL (ESL-50)
  • Level 2- Low Intermediate College ESL (ESL-1A)
  • Level 3- Intermediate College ESL (ESL-1B)

Classes are usually of a size that provides for individualized attention in a professional learning environment.
