About ESL

English as a Second Language (ESL) classes are offered to help non–native speakers to communicate in English through the development of skills in listening and observing, speaking, reading, and writing. At the beginning level, emphasis is on improving listening comprehension, vocabulary development, and English structure.

Classes are offered both day and evening. Classes are offered at the West Seattle and NewHolly campuses.

Teachers will help students choose specific skills to supplement their core classes. All of our ESL classes lead students toward college and career readiness.
