English as a Second Language (ESL)

English as a Second Language is designed to assist non-native speakers of English with their communication skills.

The department offers a core curriculum of high-beginning to advanced level courses in conversation, reading and writing.

We also offer supplemental courses in grammar review, accent reduction, phonics and spelling as well as lab-only courses for reading, writing, listening and speaking.
