Welcome to Chabot's English as a Second Language (ESL) Program!
The ESL program at Chabot offers a number of different courses to help
you improve your English reading, writing, grammar, listening, and speaking skills.
It's an academic program, which means that it's designed to prepare our students
to take college-level English courses. However, we also have many students
who want to improve their English skills for gaining employment, advancing at
their jobs, or exploring new careers and job certificates.
Our courses start at the high-beginning level. They are designed for
students who have already studied English at an adult school or high school for
at least two or three years. (If you have only studied English for a short time,
an adult school class is probably best for you). It's a good idea to register
early because our courses often fill up very quickly.
If you want more detailed information about each course,
go to ESL Course Descriptions. If you want
