English as a Second Language (ESL)

Shoreline’s English as a Second Language Program offers English language classes for non-native English speaking immigrants, refugees and citizens.

We offer six levels of ESL classes that are available in the day and evening which help students to improve their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. In addition, we offer two academic levels available in the daytime that prepare students to enter our college level classes or professional technical programs.
