English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

If you need to learn English, we have just what you need. We designed our two-tiered CPS ESOL Program to prepare high-intermediate and advanced ESOL students just like you for academic and vocational college studies. Each of our two ESOL levels has four courses, including high-intermediate and advanced grammar, writing, conversation, and high-intermediate reading and Preparation for College. Every course includes a lab component. We place you into our program on the basis of your ESOL placement score.
