ESOL Information for International Students

The English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) credit curriculum at Eastfield College is designed to develop a student's academic English language proficiency in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The plan of study consists of sixteen courses divided into four proficiency levels and four skill areas (Listening-Speaking, Reading, Writing, and Grammar). Special topics courses are also offered to complement the core ESOL course offerings. A student enters this program by taking an English placement test and then by being advised by a specially trained ESOL academic advisor.

Intensive English Program (IEP)

The Intensive English Program (IEP) offers students the opportunity to progress through the ESOL program at an accelerated rate, allowing students to complete two levels in one semester of study (or all levels of study in one year). Upon successful completion of the ESOL program, students enroll in courses/degree programs eligible for academic transfer.
