Communicate well in English
Maricopa Community Colleges offers both Intensive English and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs. These programs prepare you to succeed in communicating in your everyday life, as well as in future college-level courses.
Our ESL courses are designed to provide or improve the English language abilities of bilingual and international students. The classes are for ESL students at various levels of proficiency and study. For example, levels range from basic to advanced classes and often include learning English that assists students with basic services and employment tasks. ESL course offerings include credit and non-credit options.
Students are selected for this program by advisors based on interviews and English placement-test scores. Students who had limited access to public education will find the program beneficial.
