English as a Second Language (ESL)

ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE

OVERVIEW                 | En Español |

If English is not your native language and you wish to improve your reading, writing, and speaking skills, QVCC's English as a Second Language program is the place to start.* Learning English is an important step to reach academic, professional, and personal goals.

Improved English language skills will enhance all aspects of daily life, including:

• Communicating with school officials and teachers
• Communicating with employers
• Advancing in a career

The flexible comprehensive program offers five levels of instruction in Oral Communications, Grammar, and Reading and Writing and enables students to proceed at their own pace. High intermediate and advanced ESL courses can be counted as foreign language/humanities electives toward graduation.

*EAST CONN offers an ESL program for true beginners who do not place in one of the lower levels (see link at right).
