ESL Lab

The ESL Center offers intensive English language exposure (texts and literature, audio and visual media, & computer and web programs) to help students improve their success rate in all classes.  We do not offer drop-in tutoring, which can be found in the Tutoring and Writing Centers in the Learning Resource Center.

Students taking Reading or Listening labs should register immediately for 0.5 units of the lab they want and then select a time during their first R/L class meeting.  Independent students may enroll in 0.5 units of ESL 44/54/94/95 at any time up to the middle of the semester.  Lab is closed during the first week except for questions and registration, and the second week is a required orientation (for all students).  Lab begins in the third week.  All labs are graded pass/fail and require students to complete 27 or more hours to receive credit.

The ESL Center has a wealth of materials, carefully arranged and selected for your specific level and focus.  There is an ESL faculty member present during all hours that the lab is open, as well as student tutors and an instructional assistant, all happy to assist all students enrolled in the lab courses.
