ESL Assessment


ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE (ESL):

The ESL assessment is designed for students for who want to learn how to speak, read and write in English and/or English Language Learners students coming from other countries who did not complete at least three years of high school in the U.S.

We have six levels of courses from low-intermediate to college-level English composition, and the Guided Self Placement process will help know which level is the right one for you.

The Guided Self Placement process has two parts:

  • ZOOM meeting with a faculty member (about 15 minutes)
  • You need access to ZOOM and the Internet
  • Meeting with a counselor to register for your classes (about 15 minutes)

Please contact hernang12@laccd.edu to inquire about setting up the Guided Self Placement.
