ESL Department

Welcome to the ESL department webpage at College of the Sequoias.  It is the mission of the ESL department to support
students’ movement toward personal and academic goals.  The English as a Second Language program currently provides 4 levels of classes for the development of writing, reading, and speaking skills.  It is strongly recommended that students who enroll in the ESL program take a class from each of these skill areas every semester. 95459857[1].jpg
