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

Rie Walden
UCSB Transfer Student

I moved to the United States in 2012. My English was very limited, so I decided to enroll in noncredit ESL courses in the summer of that same year. By fall of 2013 after hard work and dedication, I was ready to transition to credit ESL. The sooner I started credit ESL the better, but as a new California resident the tuition was more expensive since I had to pay out of state tuition, so I decided to wait for a year to attend credit class at AHC. AHC has great student support programs that I utilized; for example, AIM, EOPS, CAN/TRIO, and the Tutorial Center. I recommend everyone to take advantage of these services and to ask for help from your instructors when needed.
