English as a Second Language (ESL)


Shoreline’s ESL Program offers English classes for English Language Learners living in Washington state.

We offer 7 levels of ESL classes to help students reach their English language goals for work, life, and academics. We have classes for beginner speakers, as well as high-level academic English classes that prepare students to enter Shoreline's degree programs and professional-technical programs.

If you have or are applying for non-immigrant status, such as an F-1 or J-1, please see International Education for program options and details.
