Welcome to Chabot's English as a Second Language (ESL) Program!
Our ESL program here at Chabot offers a number of different courses to help
you improve your English reading, writing, 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 simply want to improve their English skills.
Our courses start at the low-intermediate 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
to know when each course is offered, go to the current Schedule of Classes at
Class-Web and view the current schedule of classes for Chabot College. Click on
