English as a Second Language (ESL)

Shoreline’s English as a Second Language program offers 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 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.
