English as a Second Language
What is ESL?
The ESL program helps second language learners improve their skills in speaking, reading, and writing the English language.
OCC offers four levels of combined writing/reading courses, four levels of combined grammar/listening courses, and three levels of speaking courses. These are credit courses that follow the semester plan.
OCC’s ESL classes follow the College calendar. Courses are offered during the fall and winter semesters. Accelerated courses are offered in the first part of the summer semester. Classes start at the end of August, the beginning of January, and the beginning of May.
