English as a Second Language (ESL)


We offer four levels of FREE ESL classes, beginning with Life Skills (ESL 310) and progressing through high-intermediate (ESL 313). These classes prepare students for career and college. We also currently offer workforce class ESL 352A/B to support the Early Childhood Education (ECE) classes taught in Spanish. Click here for a class schedule.
