Welcome to CMC’s English as a Second Language (ESL) Program

CMC offers English classes for levels from beginning to precollege. Classes include practice in English speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills.  Classes are open to all adults, ages 17 and older. ESL classes do not offer college credit. After successfully completing the course, you receive a certificate of completion that shows the number of hours of the course.

If you need to meet with someone online, you can make an appointment with an ESL advisor.
