Credit ESL Program/Programa de crédito de ESL

ESL Classroom

The credit ESL (English a Second Language) program prepares non-native speakers of English for academic study in English. The credit program offers semester-length courses in reading, writing, grammar, and listening/speaking skills at four levels: beginning, low intermediate, high intermediate, and advanced. Students who complete these credit courses often continue studying at the college to obtain skills for a new career, earn a certificate or degree, or prepare themselves to transfer to a four-year university. 

El programa de crédito de ESL (inglés como segundo idioma) está diseñado para las personas cuyo idioma natal no es el inglés y los prepara para el estudio académico en inglés. El programa de crédito ofrece cursos de duración de un semestre que cubren lectura, escritura, gramática y conversación/comprensión auditiva en cuatro niveles: principiante, intermedio bajo, intermedio alto y avanzado. Los estudiantes que completan estos cursos de crédito frecuentemente continúan estudiando en el colegio para obtener destrezas que les sirvan para obtener una nueva carrera, un certificado o un título o para prepararse y poder transferirse a una universidad.

ESL Spotlight

Alma Garcia

Alma Garcia
ESL Student

"I came from Mexico at age17, which meant I not only had to learn English at a High School level, but had to prepare for college-level courses. During my first semesters at AHC I enrolled in ESL, and made extensive use of their writing lab, which I believe was critical in my transition to transfer level classes. Engineering is a difficult major on its own, but learning all those concepts and terminology while just getting out of ESL classes was a challenge. AHC professors, counselors and programs were key to my success."
