English as a Second Language (ESL)

The purpose of the ESL curriculum is to provide ESL instruction in reading, writing, speaking, and listening to students whose main language is not English to enable them to enter courses that would lead to a certificate, a career associate degree, or a transfer associate degree from Northern Essex Community College.

Students enrolled in ESL courses may visit the Tutoring Center for individualized tutoring.
