English as a Second Language (ESL)

Community Based English as a Second Language (ESL) at FCC

These courses are designed for students who:

  • have had very little or no instruction in English,
  • need basic English skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) to promote greater independence and fuller participation in life in the United States.
  • need to improve English skills for workplace communication.

Community Based ESL classes are held at a variety of locations in the community.

Students must attend an orientation and take an English proficiency test to determine which class is best for them. A schedule of upcoming orientation sessions is provided below.
