English as a Second Language (ESL)

Shoreline’s English as a Second Language program offers classes for non-native English speakers living in Washington state.

We offer eight levels of ESL classes to help students reach their English language goals for work, life, or academics. We have classes for beginner speakers up to upper-level academic English classes that prepare students to enter Shoreline's college level classes or 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.
