English as a Second Language (ESL)

Despite the many challenges facing individuals with limited English, the ESL program at Palo Alto College offers the opportunity to progress to the skill level they want to attain.

The program is comprised of three levels: Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced level classes to accommodate student proficiency with emphasis and development of functional language skills. These courses focus on listening, reading and writing skills. These courses include an elective class for speaking and conversation.

All students requesting to register for an intermediate or advanced course and have not completed the pre-­‐requisite course, must take the ESL assessment before registering for a class.  Please contact our office at 486-3400 for an appointment.

The program is comprised of six levels to accommodate student proficiency and increase communicative competence.  The focus of these courses is listening, speaking, reading, conversation, writing and grammar.  Students will be immersed in authentic and standard English at a level that is meaningful and comprehensible while being actively involved in the language learning process.
