Credit ESL Program/Programa de crédito de ESL

The credit ESL (English a Second Language) program prepares non-native speakers of English for academic study in English. The credit program offers semester-length courses in reading, writing, grammar, and listening/speaking skills at four levels: beginning, low intermediate, high intermediate, and advanced. Students who complete these credit courses often continue studying at the college to obtain skills for a new career, earn a certificate or degree, or prepare themselves to transfer to a four-year university. 

El programa de crédito de ESL (inglés como segundo idioma) está diseñado para las personas cuyo idioma natal no es el inglés y los prepara para el estudio académico en inglés. El programa de crédito ofrece cursos de duración de un semestre que cubren lectura, escritura, gramática y conversación/comprensión auditiva en cuatro niveles: principiante, intermedio bajo, intermedio alto y avanzado. Los estudiantes que completan estos cursos de crédito frecuentemente continúan estudiando en el colegio para obtener destrezas que les sirvan para obtener una nueva carrera, un certificado o un título o para prepararse y poder transferirse a una universidad.

ESL Spotlight

Arturo Avila

Arturo Avila
Science Instructor, PVHS

One of the obstacles that I had to overcome was breaking the language barrier. Another obstacle I faced was financial hardship. As I completed my classes at AHC, I had to work in many part-time jobs such as a math/science tutor for the college tutoring center, night shift clerk for a local grocery store and vegetable cooling. Also, the MESA program and the STEM Center, not only supported me academically through resources such as access to books and computers, but also through working with students with interest in mathematics, science and engineering.
