ESL: English as a Second Language

Our ESL program and courses are designed to help you:

  • Be prepared to take college-level English courses;
  • Improve your English skills for gaining employment, job advancement, or exploring new careers and job certificates.

Is Chabot College ESL Right For Me?
Our ESL program is ideal for students who:
  1. Have already studied English at an adult school or high school for at least two or three years; and,
  2. Can read short articles and write short paragraphs.

If you have only studied English for a short time, an adult school class is probably best for you.
