English as a Second Language (for academic units of credit)
The credit ESL program prepares non-native speakers of English for academic study
in English. The credit program offers semester-length courses in reading, writing,
grammar, and listening/speaking skills at four levels: beginning, low intermediate,
high intermediate, and advanced. Students who complete these credit courses often
continue studying at the college to obtain skills for a new career, earn a certificate
or degree, or prepare themselves to transfer to a university.
